What type of systems are available at Beediverse to manage mason bees?
Mason bee nests at Beediverse are based on the Stacked Tray-System (STS) that consists of stacked pieces of corn derived material or grooved wooden trays. Our nests are designed to be taken apart in the fall for cleaning and getting rid of mites and pests. We also carry natural reeds and Ezy-Harvest cardboard tubes that can be opened and are a one time use system. With over 35 years of experience with bees Beediverse offers top-quality products carefully designed to suit the needs of our customers.
Go GREEN! Beediverse Quicklock trays are durable, attractive to bees, easy to harvest and clean and are reuseable season after season.
