Bambeco Mason Bee Barn

  • Mason bees are solitary, native bees which are the most prolific pollinators on our plant. Unlike honey bees. there is no colony with workers. there are no swarms, and they do not produce honey. Their sole focus is pollination, and they make friendly, non-aggressive neighbors.
  • Once a female bee establishes her home in a nesting tube (#1) she will lay her eggs. fill the tubs with nourishment (#2) and seak off the entrance with mud soher young can safely grow for next spring's hatch (#3 & #4)
  • A nursery for super-pollinating 
  • Non-stinging native bees
  • With butterfly Shelter
  • Instructions
    • Place in garden or hang 5-7 feet high on a wallor fence that gets morning sunlight , under an overheang if possible 
    • Plant native plants and flowers nearby to draw these super-pollinating bees to your bee house
    • Create a moist patch of soil near the bee house so bees have mud to protect their young
    • In autumn store bee house in an outdoor shed or covered location for winter. Do not store inside your house
    • In early spring return house to original location
    • Once new bees hatch, clean out nesting tubs and trays with pipe cleaner for next season's offspring
    • Nesting tray bands and cardboard backing should remain in place to protect the bees
