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.

    Flimsy

    By Beth the Beekeeper

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about : Mason Bee House:

    I used this product in my garden, following the instructions, and it didn't attract any bees. Worse, it fell apart after one season. The tubes became loose and finally the housing part of the frame separated from the wooden clamp at the top, and the bee house fell to the ground. The bee house is not durable, and I wouldn't buy it again.

    An attractive residence for your bees!

    By Hank

    Pros

    • An attractive home for the necessar insects

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Hopefully to attract bees.

      Comments about : Mason Bee House:

      A swarm of yet unidentified bees invaded my wheel barrow last summer. It was half full of soil and a good place to store my kneeler. I covered it with a tarp to keep out the rain and as soon as I did they moved in. I bought the bee house but as yet they haven't taken the hint. When they do I'll raise this to five stars. It's attractive, well constructed and easy to mount on a hook. Hopefully they'll move in because with bees in my yard I don't have to use as many Q-tips to pollinate my veggies.

      Comments about : Mason Bee House:

      We purchased two of these to hang on our bottle tree arch (also purchased from Gardeners.com). We have bees under the soffit on the front of our house. We are confident that the bees will move to our Mason Bee Houses.

      Quality product

      Pros

      • More fruits and vegetables

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Pollinator home

        Comments about : Mason Bee House:

        With the loss of honey bees, mason bees help fill the gap of pollinators. This little house gives them a place in our yard. It is the second one we have owned. The one we had before lasted about 5 years. Great investment.

        This is a really well made product as well as beautiful. I need to wait until spring to see if I get any residents. Until then I will enjoy the beauty of it.

        We haven't had the bee house long enough to know how the bees will do with it, but I'm hoping it has good results. Our gardens did great this year. We had many bees in our garden. Mason Bees are great pollinators and they don't sting. We should soon see how the bees like their new home. :) Thank you.

        With the honey bee population declining we need to help other pollinators!
