Description of environmental benefits

With the dramatic decline of the Honey bee population, pollination has suffered accordingly. Poor pollination makes poor crops. A poorly pollinated blossom will produce small or misshapen fruit or no fruit at all. I have had many people say they have not had fruit on their trees for years and once they started with Mason bees, the trees cropped in abundance.

The Mason bee occurs naturally across most of the United States and Southern Canada.

Mason bees are only around for 6 to 8 weeks, beginning in early spring. The rest of the year the new generation are in the tubes developing first from an egg to larvae, then cocooning and transforming in to an adult bee and finally hibernating through winter until spring. They then emerge and the cycle begins again.
