If you're looking to make more space for nature then the Bee Brick® solitary bee house is for you.
Great for garden lovers, design lovers and nature lovers, the Bee Brick® is an innovative nesting site for solitary bees, created to look lovely just standing in your garden, with the added innovation that the brick can also be used in place of a standard brick in building, creating more habitat for non-swarming solitary bees. The Bee Brick® provides a stylish nesting site for red mason and leaf cutter bees, amongst other cavity-nesting species, and makes a real design statement in any bee-friendly garden, allotment, or building.
Solitary bees are fascinating to watch and a wonderful way to introduce kids to bees, solitary bees have no queen or honey to protect, meaning they are non-aggressive and won't sting.
Bee houses can be a simple way to do something to help our declining bee population, alongside bee-friendly planting and other wildlife-friendly measures.
