Mason Bee Nest Kit
Native Orchard Mason Bees are wide-spread throughout North America. They are superb early season pollinators of fruit trees, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries - and better than honeybees because the Masons' are active in colder temperatures and their hairy bodies carry more of the pollen that fertilizes your blossoms. Each female Orchard Bee makes her own nest in a series of tubes that she then seals with mud. Outer housing is made from 100% recycled and recyclable polypropylene. The 6" cardboard nesting tubes are made from Kraft paper, clear wrapped for moisture resistance.
68 Tube Orchard Nest measures 6.5" long x 3" diameter.
