The Bees Block is a stylish nesting site for solitary bees, designed to look stunning in the garden or to be used within the construction of walls, based on a half breeze block dimensions for easy incorporation.
The beautiful block 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 then how about a beautiful bee house made from concrete that can be enjoyed for many years to come?
Each Bees Block contains cavities where the solitary bees lay their eggs. The bees then seal the entrance with mud or chewed vegetation, depending on species, and the offspring emerge the following spring to repeat the cycle. Because solitary bees aren't aggressive, having no honey or queen to protect, they are therefore safe to encourage around children and pets.
The Bees Block is designed and made by Green&Blue in the UK.
Made from cast concrete using up to 75% waste materials from the Cornish China Clay industry.
