Birds might be attracted to the bee house and keeping your bees safe is easy. Get some wire cloth with 1" openings and attach it to the front of the bee house. Make sure you give the bees space to move inside the house by bubbling the wire so that it's 2-3" away from the nesting holes. This keeps bird's beaks from being able to get to the bees.
Essential Accessories for Spring Mason Bees
Spring mason bees prefer to nest in nesting holes that smell like other mason bees have been there before. Use our InvitaBee Plus+ to attract female mason bees to nest in your fresh nesting materials.
Ensure your yard provides clayey mud for your female mason bees! Spring mason bees use mud to build walls inside of their nesting holes and they won't nest in your bee house without it nearby. If your soil is dry, loamy, sandy, or has too much humus, just add our Mason Bee Mud Mix to a patch in your yard.
