Additional Information

Exclusive | Mason Bees are Nature's Best Pollinators

  • Decorative house attracts pollinating mason bees
  • Made from long-lasting bamboo
  • Mason bees are small, non-stinging beneficial insects

Boost your garden's productivity by providing a happy home for peaceful, non-stinging Mason bees. Slightly smaller than honeybees, mason bees are incredible pollinators. Each one visits as many as 1000 blooms per day — 20 times as many as a honeybee! Hang this natural bamboo house against a tree or wall where it will get morning sun and attract mason bees. Female bees fill the bamboo tubes with their eggs, and nectar and pollen for the young to eat.

      I do not use pesticides or other chemicals in my yard. I like to garden to save the bees and butterflies. This bee house is attractive and bees have already starting setting up residence.

        I bought one because I wanted to help the Mason Bees. It was attractive, bamboo (natural) and I thought it would look nice in the yard. I wish I had done some research. My friend is a Master Gardener and a Mason Bee expert. She told me to take it
        back. She said it doesn't breath and is hard to clean because it cannot be opened up.

        the bees don't seem to care for it

            I was concerned as to how it would hold up with rains and so sprayed it with a clear paint sealer - only on the outside and hung it near the blueberry bushes. There was loads of "bumble" bees around them and the weigelia but there are no tubes filled in as yet. This is now mid-May - when do they lay eggs and plug the tubes? The hanger is off center and the unit leans forward some but this may be by design to prevent water from going into the tubes? I bought it to entice the bees away from digging out holes in my porch wood. I hope it does. I would recommend it to a friend and let them decide on purchase.

                I put up my bee home in my garden about a month or so ago and two of the tubes are already plugged with mud, signifying that the bees have tucked away their larvae for the season. This is a great buy. I really feel like I'm making a difference! Make sure that you follow the instructions on where to place it (facing the south and near flowers the bees like) and that's all there is to it!

                        Bought this two years ago. First year, not many bees, but now we have a full house! The bees love it, and we're considering a second one, as we have all flower gardens, no grass in our yard.
