+ -


This insect block provides nesting opportunities for several species of solitary bees. Brood from these wild bees can be parasitized by other species of wild bees, called cuckoo bees. Some of these species resemble wasps. These solitary bee species are unlike real bees and wasps and will never nuisance or sting! Although the bees are solitary, they can begin to inhabit the blocks in a colony-like manner.

This insect block is made entirely of FSC wood concrete and filled with various diameters of hollow bamboo.

  • Build in the block with the front flush with the facade.
  • When incorporating multiple blocks, variation in height is possible. Ideal installation heights are from the bottom to 2 to 3 meters in height.
  • Always provide a flowery immediate environment.
  • One can build in as many blocks as desired.
  • Install preferably in windless sunny locations. Not full on rain!

After a few years, the bamboo tubes will become contaminated and will no longer be used by the bees. Then replace the block or drill the bamboo tubes open and clean again. Use drill diameters between 2 and 10 mm for this purpose. Commonly used diameters are 4, 6 and 8 mm.
