Welcome to Beediverse – the Mason Bee People
The Mason bee, Osmia lignaria or blue orchard bee is a friendly and efficient pollinator of fruit trees such as apple, cherry and almond and blueberry bushes.
Mason bees are essential for pollinating flowers, and producing fruit.
1. Start with a mason bee home and mason bees in spring.
2. Summer time is for protecting bees from predators with a net bag.
3. Fall is time to get a scoop and storage boxes when harvesting your new cocoons. It is also time to assess if you need more nesting tunnels inside additional mason bee homes for the following spring.
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.
