The Beepost is a stunning bee tower designed to create a beautiful nesting site for solitary bees, a development of the award-winning Bee Brick. Beepost has been created as a beautiful, freestanding bee nest which can be incorporated into stunning architectural design and ambitious landscaping projects. Perfect for use in urban landscapes and redevelopment, or to make a strong style statement in your garden.
‘Britain has more than 250 bee species, but numbers have fallen dramatically due to disease, an increase in chemical use and habitat loss (Friends of the Earth 2013). The Green&Blue range of bee products aims to provide more nesting site for solitary bees, who are vital for pollination. And because solitary bees don’t have a queen, hive or honey to protect they are non aggressive, meaning they are safe to encourage around children and pets.
