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.

Specifications

  • 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

              This is a great product. The wasps don't like it because they are not interconnected. Already have Masons in it.

                Comments about Mason Bee House:

                I was very excited to use this item, but it disintegrated in less than two years' time - before any mason bees decided to move into it. People should take note of the "lasts one to two years" statement in the product description. The woven shell will eventually come apart with the rain and the sun, causing the entire product to fall apart. I am not happy with it at all.

                  This is exactly what I was looking for. Due to arthritis I am unable to make my own. This is more attractive than what I used to make.

                    It comes assembled, one just has to find the right location for placement. Mason Bees are helpful. This makes a great place for the bees.
