These Innovative Bee Bricks Install On Your Home, Provide a Safe Environment For Bees To Nest

As you may have already heard, the bees are in serious trouble. These fuzzy little insects are experiencing a rapid population decline due to habitat loss, pesticides and climate change -- and without these important pollinators buzzing around, we’re going to be in serious trouble too.  To save our bumbling buddies, innovators all over the world are working hard on new technology that will allow us to live peacefully alongside the bees. So put away your Critter Catcher and pull out your Car-Full-of-Bees Sunshade, because today we’re talking about Bee Bricks!

Designed by the UK based company Green and Blue, Bee Bricks are totally functional bricks that provide a nesting place for our pollinating pals. Using the exact same dimensions as traditional construction bricks, Bee Bricks are hollow and full of the tiny holes that look so inviting to certain solitary species of bees.

Green and Blue recommends positioning your Bee Bricks in a sunny spot that’s at least 1 meter (or about 3.25 feet) off the ground to make the sanctuary as inviting as possible to nearby bees.
