The benefits of having MASON BEES is more fruit and larger fruit. It is an early spring pollinator that has the ability to fly in cool temperatures.  This fact makes mason bees the perfect candidate for pollinating early spring blossoms such as apple, peach and pear. Mason bees  also fly close to home (within 500 ft/ half a km) and pollinate all flowers present in the vicinity.  A bee home plus mason bee cocoons is the easy way to get started with these friendly beneficial bees.
