Mason Bee House

 

 

What helps create beautiful flowering gardens and big, juicy fruit and vegetables?

POLLINATION!

Attract Mason Bees to your garden. Small, blue-black Mason Bees are nature's mild mannered, peaceful pollinators that bring bountiful harvests to gardens and orchards.

We Need The Bees! In the last few years, the honeybee population has plummeted from an onslaught of foreign mites and viruses. The Orchard Mason Bee population has not been affected and is the planet's most effective pollinator. And The Bees Need Us! Mason Bees are unable to tunnel holes for their nests - they rely on existing holes of the right size. By providing nesting sites, we can help these bees fulfill their life's mission, while they provide us with better quality gardens and crops.

Handcrafted from durable, recycled redwood.

Dimensions: 11 in. height, 5 in. width, 5 in. dept

A mason bee house and a bat house are seen Tuesday, Dec. 16, 2008 in New Market, Va. Designing a garden attractive to pollinators may attract some foraging bees and wasps, bats and hummingbirds. Adding some shelters may help keep them around. This mason bee house is becoming a popular item for gardeners trying to produce a healthy food supply.
