Check out your mason bee homes every now and then, and make sure you do not have a line of ants crawling towards the bees’ nests. A good way of getting rid of them is to first remove most of the ants bysquashing them, and then have a water spary and then drip at the location where ants are crawling up the structure. When the ground is wet, ants are discouraged from going in the direction of moist soil.
Yes, Beediverse has both Osmia lignaria (early spring mason bees) and Osmia californica (late spring mason bees) available until late April.
