100 Grade A Mason Bee Cocoons, available to ship February - April, 2017. Includes FREE SHIPPING!
You should only purchase bees acclimated to your region/climate for best bee health. Our bees are raised locally or received through our BeeBuyBack program whereby gardeners across the nation raise bees for us. Bees sent to you will come from nearby states/provinces/regions or from a similar climate zone to help ensure the best bee health and performance.
Mason bees are perfect for fruit and nut trees, blueberries and strawberries, and virtually all flowers in your yard needing spring pollination. Each package of cocoons has 40 female and 60 male cocoons (nature’s natural ratio). The cocoons have been inspected and washed for pests and stored in a climate controlled room. Although we do all we can to ensure you are gaining healthy mason bees, nature sometimes has bees die in hibernation.
Please do NOT use wood blocks with drilled holes or bamboo holes. Your bees will fail within a few years due to pest buildup. Your success is important.
Bees will be sent “First Class Mail” and are mailed out each Monday. If you require special shipping, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (425) 949-7954 to make arrangements.
If bees emerge during shipment, this is ok and natural for shipments between February and April. Follow instructions included with your bees.
