My name is Dr Margriet Dogterom and am the founder and owner of Beediverse. I write this blog for all who love bees and who want to learn more about these wonderful creatures.
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.
