The benefits of having MASON BEES is more fruit and larger fruit. The ability to fly in cooler temperatures allow mason bees to pollinate early spring blossoms such as apple, peach and pear. Mason bees  fly close to home (within 500 ft/ half a km) and pollinate all flowers present in the vicinity.  A bee home and mason bee cocoons will get you started with these friendly beneficial bees.
