Mortar bees or Masonry Bees, are large, yellow and pale brown bees who are often found alone rather than in a hive. They like to burrow in crevices and holes in sand, hard soil, rock face and brick foundations – hence Mortar Bee. They are not known for stinging humans.
While Mortar bees are not dangerous to humans, they are still incredibly destructive. They find soft mortar mixes and then burrow their way in – removing the mortar from the brickwork. This then allows moisture to enter the walls which leads to structural damage from water and can even result in a collapse of brickwork.
This makes them a giant pest throughout Australia, resulting in many failed buildings and leaving a threat to the residents inside.
This is why it is essential to take care of the problem early on and stop Mortar Bees before they cause irreparable harm and damage.
