This pack of cardboard Mason Bee Nesting Tubes are specifically designed for solitary species such as the Red Mason and leafcutter bees. The sustainable case can be mounted on any south facing tree, wall or fence. We also supply a purpose built mason bee nest box, otherwise the tubes can be removed and used as replacement refills for any existing bee houses.
Solitary (non-stinging) Red Mason Bees are excellent garden and orchard pollinators and are a species that are under threat and in need of our help.
Simply place in the garden facing due south, in full sun and pointing slightly downward, the nesting cylinders could be active from late March until late August and used tubes should be placed in a frost free garage or shed during the winter months.
