Small Bee Brick White
Out of stock
Help our declining bee population by placing a Bee Brick in your garden or allotment, or in place of a standard brick in construction. Made in Cornwall from concrete that is a by-product from the China clay industry, they provide an innovative nesting site and would make a wonderful gift for gardeners.
Solitary bees are fascinating to watch and have no queen or honey to protect, so they are non-aggressive and won’t sting. They will lay their eggs in the cavities, sealing the entrance with mud or chewed up vegetation. Offspring will then emerge in the Spring and begin the process of nesting again, repeating the cycle.
Ideally, a Bee Brick should be positioned in a warm sunny south facing position, at least 1 metre from the ground. Available in other colours and sizes.
