Description

  • 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.

  • Lasts one to two years
  • Designed to attract Mason bees (bees not included)
  • 5-3/4" W x 10" H x 5-3/4" D

        Comments about Mason Bee House:

        I bought this house 4-5 years ago and it is still being used by the mason bees. Early every spring it is swarming with bees. I hung the house on a trellis top about 5 feet off the ground, under an overhang on the east side of my house. It gets some morning sun and afternoon shade which the bees seem to like. It is out of the weather for the most part which has attributed to its longevity. I leave it out all winter and don't disturb it which I believe also helps. There is a patch of Lenten flowers nearby which may be providing early nector. The reason for suggesting a flat bottom is so it could sit on a windowsill. As it is, it has to hang on something.

          Unique to the garden. Looking forward to seeing how many bees will be attracted. May change the rating to 5 stars if I see an increase in pollinators.

                      I think every garden should have a Mason Bee house. It helps keep the bees near your garden - And you benefit from their presence

                        Most gardens need habitats of the proper critter-friendly form to keep beneficial insects there to do your work for you. When that habitat is "presentable for company," you have the best of both worlds.

                        Mason bees are -- perhaps unbeknownst to you before -- one of the critters you definitely need to make your garden operate at its best. You pay a little for a good home for them, and they'll work for free ever after.
