What are Mason Bees?

The Mason bee, Osmia lignaria  is a friendly and efficient pollinator of fruit trees such as apple, cherry and almond and blueberry bushes.

If you have bees you are likely to get more fruit and larger fruit from your trees and bushes.

                             What to do and How to start

1.  In spring start with a mason bee home and mason bee cocoons.

2Summer time is for protecting bees from the weather and from predators with a net bag.

3.  Fall is time to get a scoop and storage boxes for harvested cocoons. It is also time to clean nests and assess if you need more nesting tunnels and additional mason bee homes for next spring.

4.  Winter is a good time to catching up on your reading. The book Pollination with Mason bees will give you background information and great details on your new hobby.

 

Mason Bees are an essential part of growing your own local organic produce. Beediverse homes are a great way to encourage pollinators into your garden.
