About Us

We are all about mason bees and have been since 1999.  Our bee homes and tools have been developed so gardeners and fruit growers can keep Mason bees with success.  Mason bees are a perfect fit for backyard gardens.  Fruit will be more plentiful and larger in size.  We sell mason bee cocoons, locally made mason bee homes and educational items such as the book about keeping mason bees, by Dr. Dogterom, poster and DVD   through our retail online store. We sell retqail online and wholesale to garden stores, bird stores, gift shops and educational facilities.

OUR MISSION is to introduce backyard gardeners to the fun and rewards of MASON BEES, enrich every garden with MASON BEES, and provide information on how to successfully care for MASON BEES.

“OUR VISION is that BEEDIVERSE will remain the leading information source on how to successfully care for MASON BEES and provide research-based quality products to BEEDIVERSE customers.””

Review by Marie L.  Review of Quick-lock Trays: After several years and several hours each year of harvesting by tearing apart cardboard tubes of Mason Bee cocoons, I am so happy to have switched to the Mason bee condos (Quicklock Trays). They make the cocoon harvest much easier, and they are reusable from year to year. Mason bee keepers: HARVEST the cocoons; it keeps the bees healthier, so they can be better at pollinating.

Review by Joel R.    Thank you for your wonderful Mason Bee products and support.  With lots of happy sleeping bees, I wish you a Merry Christmas!
