This DVD will empower you! It is awesome.” Karen D. from Washington.


It is in part a ‘HOW-TO’  video and documentary “All about Mason Bees.”  Contains extraordinary close-up sequences of Mason bees making nests, it includes sequences of the bee depositing pollen in the nest, laying eggs, and constructing and sealing the chambers. You’ll even see the larvae feeding on pollen!


This DVD will clearly show you the annual cycle of beekeeping.  It includes setting up and positioning nests in the spring, retrieving cocoons from the nest in the fall, identifying viable eggs, removing pests, over-wintering eggs, then setting up a healthy nest again in spring.  Dr. Dogterom provides a complete overview of all the mason bee houses, nests and equipment, so you’ll discover which models best suit you and your garden.

All video with the exception of “Inside the Nest” created, written and narrated by Dr. Margriet Dogterom.
