Bees are essential for pollination. Mason Bee colonies can do over 200 times the pollinating of similarly sized honey bee colonies. Unlike honey bees, Masons are small, black, non-territorial bees, thus they are less likely to harm humans or pets. They are also native to most of North America.
In the wild, mason bees find holes in trees to nest in, they build their homes using mud, hence the name Mason. To invite them to stay around your garden you only need to have food for them (flower pollen) and a shelter for them to breed and live. We offer Mason Bee Kits with 68 tubes. For a larger group of bees, use our Mason Bee Cedar Shelter that comes with three tubes of 68.
