This birdfeed is not just designed for British Birds (although it is perfect for them), no, this

An artistic and ingenious way to make your garden both attractive and inviting to wildlife. These 'Bee Blocks' are designed handmade in the UK, inspired by the solitary bees’ habit of using holes in old walls to lay their eggs. The ‘Bee Blocks’ are made from polished cast concrete and they provide a safe, year-round nesting site that can be positioned anywhere in the garden or built into new buildings and walls.

Small: 6.5cm x 7cm x 10.5cm

Medium: 10.5cm x 10.5cm x 10.5cm

Large: 21.5cm x 10.5cm x 6.5cm

The bee brick has been created to be either an integral part of a building or can be positioned as a free standing bee nest in the garden. It offers the dual function of being a construction material that also promotes biodiversity. It is designed to sit alongside current green systems such as Solar panels, rainwater harvesting and Sedan roofs.

The three different sizes look great when stacked together in your garden but work just as well when placed individually.

What is new about it

We have taken a mainstream construction material as a starting point and reworked it to become a home for nesting bees. Whether used as a stand alone product in your garden or situated in the wall of a new build, our bee brick provides additional habitats for bees in spaces where they may otherwise have been forced out.

How does it work?

Each Bee brick contains cavities for solitary bees to lay their eggs. Each cavity is moulded part way into the brick ensuring bees cannot enter the building. Bees lay their eggs inside the holes and seal the entrance with mud or chewed up vegetation. The offspring emerge the following Spring and begin the cycle again.

About solitary bees

Solitary bees are harmless and will not sting you unless you squash them, and even then their stings are not painful. They are a vital part of your local bio-diversity and should be encouraged and cherished, particularly by gardeners as they pollinate fruit crops. The bee brick should be positioned in a warm sunny spot with no vegetation in front of the holes.
