Collection: Mason Bee Houses

Is there anything more lovely than the sight of bees, as they buzz around the flowers in our gardens? Red mason bees are an endangered native solitary bee found in England and Wales. They are wonderful pollinators and thought to be around 120 times more efficient than the honeybee. By creating bee-friendly spaces in our gardens, we can help these bees to flourish.

Mason bees are gentle (they do not sting) and are solitary bees, who do not nest in a hive but in hollow spaces. In the wild they nest in existing holes and cavities and prefer those in sunny south-facing locations. Contribute to the well-being of these native bees by offering them a ready-made house in which to nest.

Our mason bee houses include:

Solitary Bee House
Solitary Bee House Tower
Hexagon Mason Bee House Pack
Honeycomb Mason Bee House
Mason Bee House
Mason Bee Tubes

How to look after your bees

Our bee houses have multiple chambers for the bees to house their larvae. Mason bees will be active from late March and be seen buzzing around collecting pollen and nectar from a wide variety of plants and flowers to feed their larvae as they create cells inside the chamber. Once each cell is complete with an egg and food, each female bee will seal it. The following spring the bees will emerge and repeat the cycle, pollinating plants and flowers as they go and creating new nests.

Up to a third of all food crops are produced by the work of mason bees and these bees are common in gardens and parks. The number of mason bees in the UK and all around the world is dropping. This is due to many factors, such as intensive farming and use of pesticides, causing loss of their natural habitats such as wildflower meadows.

You do not need a big space to have a mason bee house. Read our blog about solitary bees and bee houses.

Always remember food and water for bees

In order to thrive, bees need a diet of nectar and pollen. Sow some wildflower seeds in your garden, along with other bee-friendly plants and provide them with a safe place to drink water, preferably rainwater.
