Description

Designed and made by Green&Blue in our Cornish workshop, the large bee block is a freestanding bee nest which can be placed in your garden or which can also be built into a wall or building to provide additional habitat for solitary bees.

Each bee block contains cavities in which solitary bees can lay their eggs. The bees then seal the entrance with mud or chewed vegetation and the offspring emerge the following spring and repeat this cycle again. Solitary bees are non aggressive as they have no honey to protect, they will only sting if you squash them and even then their stings are not painful, they are therefore pet and child friendly and should be encouraged and cherished as a vital part of your local biodiversity.

Our large bee block makes the perfect addition to a garden or allotment, the perfect way to encourage natural pollination and a great gift for gardeners.

If you’re interested in incorporating bee blocks into an extension, landscape project, new build, retrofit or other project please contact us for a quote and more info here or visit our commercial website HERE for more information.
