Attract Nature's Most Industrious Pollinators!

Boost your garden's productivity by providing a happy home for peaceful, non-aggressive Mason Bees. Slightly smaller than a honey bee, Mason bees are incredible pollinators, visiting as many as 1,000 blooms a day; 20 times more than a honeybee! Hang this natural bamboo house against a tree or a wall where it will get morning sun. Female bees fill the bamboo tubes with their eggs as well as nectar and pollen for the young to eat. This all natural gardening aid will certainly be a backyard conversation piece while increasing your floral and vegetable production. 5.75" W x 20" H x 5.75"L.

A note on Mason Bees: Simply hang it and they will come! A sizeable population can be established after several years as they are excellent pollinators especially in orchards. These bees are active in early spring to mid summer when the fruit flowers are in bloom. They are adapted to a cool climate and can fly in chilly, even drizzly weather. They are non-aggressive, and not likely to sting, these bees are ideal to control for pollination uses.

Hello,

i was just reading through the reply from Vesey on this one and I am curious (because i am interested in getting one of these little bee houses) how exactly do you store away and/or clean the house if there are dormant bees inside the house? will they get washed away?

Mason Bee House

I just bought a mason bee house from Vesey's without knowing anything about how to use it. It arrived with very scant information - when I went online I found that taking care of wild Mason bees is a commitment and I had assumed that I could just hang the house up and nature would take care of the rest. I think you should let customers know up front that special care is required - now I am reconsidering if I can do this. Some indication of the work involved should be on the product page and a proper guide should be included with the purchase. I don't have an orchard or large vegetable garden - just a flower garden.
