Bee houses 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.
Green&Blue bee houses are solid at the back and have various cast cavities 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, alongside many wildlife species, are facing a 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. Green&Blue bee houses can be used in urban spaces and places where there may not be alternative nesting sites for bees, either built into walls or buildings 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.
