Leafcutter bees cut tiny pieces of leaf and flower petals to create a safe place for their new offspring. Leafcutter bees require warm temperatures of at least 20C / 70F to become active and pollinate flowers. Nesting trays are made out of wood and routered to make the nesting tunnels. This mason bee house is easy to take apart and clean in readiness for the following spring. Housing is topped with a hinged cedar roof. The attic space below the cedar roof provides a sheltered room for emerging mason bee cocoons. There are many different species of summer mason bees
- They are present in the garden between May to September
- After one season it is common to see that 3 different species have nested in the same house
- Each species nests for about 1 month.
- Prior to setting out Highrise, push nesting block tight against back of the wooden Highrise.
- Place in a sunny spot, safe from wind and rain.
- Place at eye level so bees can be watched going to and from their flower patch.
