This clever little insert for your VegTrug™ Patio Garden gives pollinators, like the gentle, non-aggressive, and non-stinging mason bee, a much-needed helping hand. Between March and August, females will lay their eggs in the cardboard tubes and use mud or leaves to create separate cells within those tubes. Larvae will develop through the winter and emerge as adults the following spring. And they'll get straight to work pollinating your garden — win win!
Solitary bees like these can pollinate up to 85% more than a honey bee. And since they're not aggressive or stinging, they don't pose a danger to people or pets. This bee bar is a fabulous way to encourage them to nest in your garden.
