Description

Attract friendly native mason bees. Mason bees, also called orchard bees, are native to North America and live in wooded areas and even around homes and other populated areas. Mason Bees are pollination helpers that will increase production in fruit trees and berry plants, each doing the job of about 100 honeybees. It is not in their nature to chase or sting unless aggressively provoked. After nesting, Mason Bees emerge from these tubes as the first blossoms appear in spring – first the males, followed by a greater number of females. Each female lays 6 to 7 eggs per 6-inch tube. Replace used tubes with fresh clean replacement tubes, and increase your bee population by gradually adding more tubes. Bees not included.

  • Kit measures approximately 6.25" long x 3.25" in diameter.
  • Replacement Tubes measure approximately 6" long x 5/16" in diameter.

Where do I get the bees ?
Stinger on Dec 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Mason bees are native to North America – mostly living in wooded areas but even in more populated places as well. They're likely already in your area. The mason bee nests simply provide a home specifically for these hard-working beneficial insects.
Where & how do I place my Mason Bee Kit in my orchard?
A shopper on Jan 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you want your Mason Bees to pollinate your fruit trees, berry plants, etc., try to place the nests close to the pollen source. Choose a warm, dry place that is sturdy and protected from wind (and anything that might disturb the nest). A spot with good sun exposure, especially to morning sun, will get these busy beneficials moving!

The unexpected
I carefully hung it under the eaves of the old chicken coop near the garden and nothing ever came. We had the coop torn down and I put the bee nest on the ground near the front door, in a sheltered corner till I got time to figure out where to re-hang it. It filled up Immediately!! It's been on the front porch under a table ever since, used by the bees.
