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.

the bees have a five star hotel
The quality is very good.

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.
Will Probably Get A Few More

Well constructed. I want at least one more for a different part of my property.
One of my favorite products

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, looks and feels well made. Can't wait for spring to hang it in the garden for mason bees!
Sturdy and attractive
from San Angel TX
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.
from Apple Valley, MN
This bee house is perfect. Beautiful design, just the right size. Quality construction. I cannot wait to introduce the bees to it and watch them make use of it.
Would think about buying it again
There are no mason bees that came with it or where to order them from.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
