The most effective control method for Chalkbrood is to harvest and clean your mason bee cocoons in the fall and provide clean nesting materials each season. A lot of people have asked us what makes our Clean Bee™ a safer alternative to bleach.
Each month our Bee Informed Blog highlights current news, science, and research related to solitary bee conservation, food insecurity, and sustainability.
