Mason Bee Care and Hosting with Janet Gifford

Native, non-stinging Mason bees are pollinators of early-spring blooming trees, shrubs, and berries. They are easy to care for and benefit from human hosts who provide them with a nesting home in which to raise their young. 

Your garden will increase its flowering and fruiting, and its support of native birds and many pollinators, as it benefits from the pollination provided by Mason bees. Being a host for Mason bees is fun for all ages, and requires no special equipment. With honey bees facing many threats, the native Mason bees are popular alternative pollinators.

When you purchase $15 worth or more of mason bee products from the Nature Store, you get a box of free mason bee cocoons!
