Mason Bee House

Mason Bee House

$25.00

Attract mason bees to your garden with a mason bee house. These little bees are the first to emerge in the spring, so you definitely want them around, if you have fruit trees, strawberries, blueberries or other early bloomers in your yard. Mason bees are a lot smaller than honey bees, but they're much more effective at pollinating. They successfully pollinate 95% of the flowers they visits; while honey bees only successfully pollinate 5%. And they visit twice as many flowers in a day.

Since mason bees are solitary bees, they're not aggressive like honey bees, and they're a lot less work, too. Just hang one of our mason bee houses, and you'll have tenants in no time. Mason bees build their nests in existing holes – just like the ones in our houses. Then, they seal their eggs in with mud, and that's where they remain, until they hatch the following spring.

Our mason bee houses have 24 nesting holes, and are built out of cedar, so they'll last for many seasons. Mounting hardware is included. Just hang your mason bee house facing south, and wait for the bees to come. You don't have to do anything else to attract them.
