  • • Cocoons can be refrigerated until the appropriate conditions exist for release.
  • • Place cocoons outdoors by May 1 to help ensure that bees emerge in good health with sufficient energy to begin their work.
  • • NOTE: Spring mason bees are not recommended for AK or gulf regions of FL, AL, MS, LA and TX. Current agricultural restrictions prohibit the shipment of mason bees to the state of HI, and other countries outside of the continental United States.

DISCLAIMER

  • • We care about your success and do our best to provide healthy bees. While most customers successfully raise gentle bees, it is important to understand that bees are wild insects and may not nest in your yard, may be eaten by birds, and may not emerge from their cocoons. We cannot guarantee survival, pollination of crops, or reproduction of bees.
  • • These bees are gentle, typically non-aggressive and rarely sting, While there have been no known reported cases of anaphylactic shock in association with these bees, the use and handling of solitary bees may result in allergic reaction for some users.
  • • Please consider signing up for BeeMail, our monthly newsletter, designed to provide tips and reminders to help ensure success.

SUMMER Leafcutter Bees available May—August

  • • Summer bees require temperatures of 75°F (24°C) or warmer AND sufficient sources of pollen/nectar for best performance.
  • • We incubate your summer bees so they arrive ready for immediate placement outdoors.
  • • If you are seeking pollination for your flowering summer vegetables, consider when these plants will flower. A seedling planted in April or May may not produce flowers until June or July.
  • • Current agricultural restrictions prohibit the shipment of leafcutter bees to the state of HI, and other countries outside of the continental United States.

Instructions

Install the BeeHut on a sturdy wall or fence facing the morning sun (south or south-east).

In the spring, place BeeTubes in 8mm size into the BeeHut, open the box of mason bee cocoons and set inside, towards the back.

When mason bees are done nesting, remove all 8mm sized BeeTubes store for summer protection.

In the summer, set BeeTubes in 6mm size into the BeeHut and place your summer leafcutter cocoons inside, towards the back.

FAQs

Mason bee cocoons are mailed February through April 30 of each year. Mason bee cocoons can be ordered early and stored in your refrigerator until daytime temps are 55F/13C (or warmer) AND there are open blooms. Be sure to set out your mason bee cocoons by May 1st.
Summer leafcutter bees ship May through August.
Not sure when to have your summer leafcutter bees delivered? Leafcutter bees need minimum 75F and your summer garden blooms ready to pollinate. If you are planting seeds or small starts, it may be several weeks before the plants are mature enough to blossom.
Please note: Leafcutter bees take about 3 weeks for us to incubate. If you request shipping prior to three weeks from the date of your order, shipping will be on a first come - first serve basis.
