Additional Information

NEW & Exclusive | Mason Bee House Provides a Cozy Nesting Site for These Gentle and Productive Pollinators

  • Rustic shelter welcomes pollinating mason bees
  • Mason bees are small, mild-mannered, beneficial insects
  • Distinctive hexagonal steel shell has a rustic finish

This rustic shelter gives gentle, beneficial mason bees a place to lay eggs and make themselves at home in your landscape. 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! This house has a durable steel shell with a antiqued copper finish, and is filled with pine and bamboo nesting tubes. Female mason bees fill the tubes with their eggs, and nectar and pollen for the young to eat. House is ready to hang with a rope loop.

It's too cold to hang this. I'll wait for Spring. However, I like the copper frame, the bee openings look the perfect size.

      I absolutely love your mason bee houses. Just purchased this one for this spring. Started with one of yours several years ago and a few bees. Now two are completely filled and used every year by countless masons. Found this new one on one of your sales and am adding it to the growing collection of houses. The bees should be thrilled. They are located on a slightly shaded eastern facing garage windowsill about 4 feet off the ground and the bees love them. Will add more as the bee population grows. Below them are early blooming lenten roses which keep the docile bees happy as do the blueberries.

      Very attractive, necessary if you want more pollinators.

      I like the design and materials. I would like a wire bale instead of the cord. It would hold up longer in the weather. Nothing worse than a bunch of angry bees when their nest comes tumbling down.

      Sturdy and attractive

      I can't wait to hang this in my garden. I have seen Mason bees in the garden and I hope to keep them there pollinating my veggies by providing a nest area. I like that it is surrounded by the copper. I think that will make it withstand the weather much better and last years longer.
