Designed and made by Green&Blue, the Large Bee Block is the world’s most innovative bee house. A freestanding bee nest that can be placed in your garden or which can also be built into walls to provide additional habitat for solitary bees.
The stylish Large Bee Block bee house makes the perfect addition to a garden or allotment, the perfect way to encourage natural pollination and a great gift for gardeners who love beautiful design.
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, repeating this cycle again. Solitary bees aren’t aggressive as they have no honey or queen to protect, they will only sting if you mishandle them and even then their stings are not painful, they are therefore safe to encourage around children and pets.
Materials Made from cast concrete using up to 70% waste materials from the Cornish China Clay industry.
