Retail stores sell Beediverse mason bee cocoons in snap-cap vials.
Cocoons were harvested from nesting tunnels and cleaned. 

The Highrise contains Eco friendly Corn Quicklock nesting trays.
Setting cocoons above nesting tunnels makes it easy for bees to find their new nests.
Remove red tab that covers the vials’s exit hole,
and lay vial with cocoons in the attic and underneath
the roof.of the Highrise.
Loose cocoons harvested from nesting tunnels can also be placed
underneath the roof of the Highrise-“the attic”
Move cocoons towards the back. of the Highrise
so they dont roll out the exit gap.
Drop roof over attic in readiness for spring.
