About this product

The Beepost is designed to create a beautiful nesting site for solitary bees and is a development of the award-winning Bee Brick. Designed to be aesthetically pleasing, it is ideal for incorporating into stunning architectural design and ambitious landscaping projects. Perfect for use in urban landscapes and development projects, or to make a strong style statement in your garden.

Each Beepost contains cavities for solitary bees to lay their eggs - they will then seal the entrance with mud or chewed up vegetation. The offspring emerge the following spring and begin the cycle again.

Beeposts are cast from concrete, using 75% waste material from the Cornish china clay industry.

Posts should be positioned to face south, in direct sunlight, ensuring that no vegetation covers the fascia. Posts should be set in concrete bases at a depth of approximately 30mm, in the same way that you would install a fence post.

Solitary bees are harmless and will not sting you unless you squash them, and even then their stings are not painful. They are a vital part of our local biodiversity and should be encouraged and cherished, particularly by gardeners as they pollinate fruit crops. It is highly recommended that bee-friendly plants should be located nearby so that the bees using the bricks have food, otherwise they are unlikely to be used. Lavender, honeysuckle and buddleia are all pollinator-friendly plants.

*Please note that Beeposts are shipped directly from the manufacturer and will incur a shipping cost of £50.00 (inc VAT) per item. Delivery time is expected to be 2 - 3 weeks.*
