Mason bee nest house, stackable, can be used with or without paper straws. If you are looking for the perfect way to take greater harvests from your small garden with an inexpensive, compact, extremely easy to use and re-use, 99% recycled material handmade-in-the-US gardening tool, this is it!

If you attract mason bees to your garden, you will notice a difference. About the size of the common house fly, gentle blue-black Mason Bees are our most powerful native pollinators. All around North America, and especially here in the Pacific Northwest, the native Mason Bee occurs in large numbers.

Unable to tunnel holes for their own nests, mason bees rely on existing holes, and have been shown to prefer 5/16” smooth holes, which I mimic using extra-sharp cutting tools. I have had great success with this method personally, and have had many come back to let me know, "it really works"!

Upon selecting a nest cavity, the female mason bee goes about her busy days of building her nests. First, she'll collect mud to build a partition at the far end of the cavity.

Once this plug is complete, she goes out to pollinate your plants, collecting pollen to provide food for the eggs she will lay in order from the bottom of the cavity, pollen, egg, mud, pollen, egg, mud, until the cavity is filled.

The final layer is always an extra-heavy mud plug, which will protect her growing larvae from harm. The following spring, the fresh bees emerge to mate and start the cycle all over again.

With these recycled wood mason bee houses, you can bring high quality yields from your garden. Simply hang it on a wall, preferably facing East or South, in a sunny spot where the box will be sheltered. An ideal location is on a wall that will receive morning sunlight, under the eave of your roof, at least 4 feet from the ground, and within 100 feet from the garden.

Comes fully assembled, with all hardware, instructions, and two small nails from which to hang it.
