Mason Bees are excellent pollinators. They have a pollination success rate of 93% to 98% compared to honey bees that have a 3% pollination success rate. The bees do not have a queen to protect so they won’t attack if they are disturbed. This is a much better choice for the backyard garden especially if children are around.

14″ tall x 5.25″ x 3.75″ with 5/16″ holes.

Description

Mason Bee House

Of the 4,000 bee species in North America, Mason Bee House are among the easiest to raise. While also being gentle and amazing pollinators, by raising solitary Mason Bee House, we can increase their population. It’s a great way to supplement the stressed Honey Bee and sustain our future food supply.

The Mason Bee is a very productive pollinator for spring flowers, fruits, and nuts. The female carries pollen on the underside of her hairy abdomen, and then scrapes the pollen off within her nesting hole. Because the pollen is carried dry on her hair, it falls off easily as she moves among flowers.

The Mason Bee, who efficiently gathers pollen and nectar on the same visit, is also an awesome cross-pollinator. They busily flit back and forth between branches or trees, instead of focusing on stripping pollen and nectar from one source.

All Mason Bees are solitary, meaning each female is a queen who does all of the chores. She can’t gather pollen/nectar, lay eggs, gather mud, AND defend her nest so she doesn’t.

The Mason Bee is extremely gentle and allows you to confidently get inches from her nesting hole without fear of being stung.

Mason Bees have a pollination success rate of 93% to 98% compared to honey bees that have a 3% pollination success rate. Mason Bees do not have a queen to protect so they won’t attack if they are disturbed. This is a much better choice for the backyard garden especially if children are around.

    I purchased the mason bee house for my dad for Father’s Day and he loved it. The house was made with superior quality and I would highly recommend purchasing from Lone Star Woodcraft!
