Give mason bees a home and watch your garden flourish under the care of these gentle, non-stinging pollinators! Replace the nesting tubes as soon as they are empty in the spring, as female bees prefer new ones each season. Ideal against a south-facing wall (where it won't swing in the wind and where the sun can keep it warm). Replacement nesting tubes sold separately.
Changing out the paper tubes in your mason bee house each spring gives newly hatched female bees the best start to nesting season. How? Clean, fresh, tubes ensure that no harmful parasites or fungi linger from the previous season to impact the bees' health.
The natural coir brushes your shoes clean, while the rubber backing traps water and muddy messes, keeping them from wrecking your nice clean floors!
For use with our Mason Bee House and Planter Combo. Nesting tubes should be replaced every spring, after resident mason bees have emerged.

A smoker works to gently distract and calm bees so you can work safely on the hive or harvest honey. A heat guard protects against unintended skin contact and burns, while an aerator filters the fuel producing a cool, harmless smoke.
