These bees are active for a short period of time and do not connect or share nest or interact with each others life's. Since they are so passive they may be observed at close range without fear of being stung. This makes them great additions for our home gardens and yards. Although they do not produce honey, their presence adds activity and pollination to our plantings.
Last year I ordered two Mason Bee Hives so I would be prepared to put them up very early in the spring before the buds emerged. Last Saturday was a great day for outdoor projects and I had my two best workers to help. Callum (2) and Thatcher (4) helped their Dumpy(Grandfather Kirts) place the homes for me.
We placed one on the barn post and the other on the Gazebo. I will let you know how it goes. I am all for finding new pollinators for my gardens.
Nothing better than extra hands in the garden!!
