The Life History, Biology, Propagation and Use of a North American Native Bee

Charming and instructive book describing the life history and propagation of the Orchard Mason Bee (Osmia lignaria). Carefully researched and written in an easy and pleasing style, it covers topics ranging from building homes for the bees to predators and parasites of the bees. The only book we know about written on this subject. A great resource for those wishing to raise these bees.

We sell Orchard Mason Bees in the cool months while they are hibernating.
