The Green&Blue Bees Block is a stylish bee house for solitary bees.
It has been designed to look stunning in the garden and can even be integrated into walls. The dimensions of each block are half the size of a conventional breeze block.
The Bees Block nesting site makes a perfect addition to any garden or allotment and is a simple way to encourage natural pollination, making it a great gift for gardeners who love beautiful design.
If you're looking for an unusual gift for Father’s day this year then how about a beautiful bee house made from concrete that can be enjoyed for many years to come?
Each Bees Block contains various sized holes for the solitary bees to lay their eggs. Then the bees seal off the entrance with mud or chewed vegetation. The offspring emerge the following spring to repeat the cycle again.
Solitary bees are not aggressive as they do not have a queen to protect and don't have to make honey — therefore it's safe to use the BEES BLOCK in the garden around children and pets.
The Bees Block bee house is designed and made by Green&Blue in the UK.
Made from cast concrete using up to 75% recycled materials from the Cornish China Clay industry.
This is the largest size of the Bees Blocks and should be positioned in a warm sunny spot, south facing. Make sure that there is no vegetation in front of the holes. Ideally placed at least 1 metre from the ground with no upward limit.
