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.

      Although it is February in Iowa I wanted to be prepared to hang this cool looking bee house as soon as spring arrives, so I purchased it with a good shipping deal! It appears to be well made and comes with a large hook at the top for easy hanging. After reading up on Mason Bee habits I can't wait to hang it outside this spring and watch the little pollinators at work.

      I have had Mason Bees in my Orchards, and they were FABULOUS POLLINATORS! They are not aggressive towards humans, but work, work, work!

        I have hung it but it is still February in Virginia and too cold for our sweet bees. I am so looking forward to meeting them! A nosy cat and dog preclude bee hives so I am very excited about this new house!

            I haven't had a chance to hang this outdoors, yet so I can't comment on its durability or success in attracting bees - but the design is very nice-looking. I have hopes!

              This is the fourth one of these bee houses we've bought--two were for gifts and two for our backyard. We love watching the bees using the house every summer to lay their eggs in, and then it's such fun to see the new bees emerge each spring! We must help save these mighty pollinators so that we ensure our own food supply. This is a great way to teach young folks the importance of our bees. I'm thinking seriously about getting another bee house to hang near our vegetable garden spot we're putting in this spring. I cannot recommend this product highly enough!

                Anxious to set these out this spring and see who moves in! Son that is an environmentalist says these would be great for attracting and providing homes for the pollinators I need in my garden.

                  I haven't given this to my friend yet, but she is a person who is concerned about the bee population. I hope she likes it.

                    I have put a pollinator garden on to my property and this is the perfect accessory to provide places for bees to nest.

                      I bought my Mason Bee home 4 years ago and just bought three more to give as Christmas gifts. Even though I hung mine on the east facing wall of my garage the bees moved right in. It was so fun to count the growing number of residents and to see them flitting around my flower garden. The bees are harmless and great pollinators. Such a simple way to help the environment.
