Mason Bees

Our Mason Bee Nursery is busy as of late! The bees are attracted to the bamboo 'tubes' which are perfect for their masonry nests. The top left photo is of a MasonBee flying in with a tiny dab of some type of mud.
These native 'hole-nesting' bees are said to be 'gentle', easy to raise  and are amazing pollinators. This Bee 'House' is hanging under our roof's overhang a few feet from our front door. While I constantly 'discourage' wasps, yellow jackets and the such, I always welcome the Masons!
Bee Well!
