Mason bees are critical garden pollinators and providing a mason bee house in your garden will help these endangered creatures. Mason bees are a species of solitary bees along with red mason bees and leafcutter bees who also like nesting in bee tubes.
The Mason Bee Nest Box comes complete and ready to hang. It is packed with features and is one of the best products available on the market.
The re-usable recycled plastic body can be used year after year by refilling with replacement tubes. It features a predator baffle to stop birds eating the bee larvae, along with an angled, overhanging top to prevent the tubes getting damp, plus additional drain holes at the back. The clever design allows it to be mounted horizontally, vertically, from top, sides or bottom, or hung from trees.
The tubes come complete with lining papers and back stops, making them perfect for bees to use as nesting tubes. They are simple to remove and overwinter in a dry cool shed or garage to ensure the greatest possible hatching rate the following spring.
Simply hang one (or preferably a collection) in quiet spots in the garden exposed to full sunshine, then sit back and watch the fascinating life cycle of your new pollinating team. Full instructions are included with this product.
