Bee Cell by Green & Blue

£12.00

The Bee Cell is a single cell nesting site designed for solitary bees.

Inspired by the guerilla gardening movement, the Bee Cell bee house makes a great gift for the garden lover in your life and is a super easy way to create additional space for cavity nesting solitary bee species. The wrap contains lots of info to help spread awareness about our brilliant bees.

The Bee Cell looks great on a garden wall, in amongst a log pile, on a sunny windowsill, anywhere where you can add a little space for wildlife.

Materials
Made in Cornwall from concrete, using 75% recycled material from the Cornish China clay industry.

Dimensions
28mm diameter and 150mm length

Weight
0.8 kg (unpackaged)

Positioning
The Bee Cell™ should be positioned in a warm sunny spot, south facing, with no vegetation in front of the fascia. Ideally placed at least 1/2 metre from the ground with no upward limit.

 

More information

Bee Cell™ is solid at the back and has a single cavity where solitary bees, such as red mason and leafcutter bees, will lay their eggs, sealing the entrance with mud or chewed up vegetation. Offspring emerge in the Spring and begin the process of nesting again, repeating the cycle.

Solitary bees are facing a dramatic decline in numbers due to disease, an increase in chemical use and habitat loss. Pollinators account for 1/3 of the food we eat and are a vital part of our environment. The Bee Cell™ can be used in urban spaces and places where there may not be alternative nesting sites for bees, either built into a wall or building or simply stood alone in a garden or allotment. Solitary bees are harmless and will not sting you unless you handle them roughly, even then their stings are not painful, meaning they are safe to encourage around pets and children.

Green&Blue are based in the beautiful seaside town of Perranporth in Cornwall, UK, co-founded in 2005 by husband and wife team Kate and Gavin Christman. After years working at Dyson and designing in their spare time, Kate and Gavin created the Birdball and moved down to Cornwall to start the company. Working from a garden shed for a few years the couple followed their passion of designing beautiful, stylish products that help wildlife.
