The Solitary Bee Bricks, made from recycled concrete, are a perfect replacement for a standard UK brick if you are looking to encourage solitary bee species in construction projects. Alternatively, these bricks can be used as a free standing habitat for bees and will continue to be used and provide suitable shelter for any occupying bees. In the UK, these bricks primarily attract native mason bees and leafcutter bees, which typically nest in similar locations in the wild.
In the UK, many solitary bee species are in decline and providing habitat for them is one of the ways we can help grow their numbers.
These bricks feature holes of varying sizes, effectively enticing bees from different species to use them for reproduction. Furthermore, their frost-resistant material makes them ideal for overwintering bees. They are also low-maintenance and easy to clean, helping to prevent the transmission of mites and diseases between successive nesting bees.
