Description

Our various Spring, Summer, or Dual Season Complete Kits with Bees make raising gentle mason and leafcutter bees easy and fun!

Lifestyle photos may not accurately depict what is included with this product. Please make sure to read the specifications and kit options below.

Please note that complete kits ship year-round! Our hard goods (Cabin Bee House, nesting reeds, booklet, and accessories) ship at the time of order, and the bee cocoons ship on your desired bee ship date(s).

Our spring mason bees and summer leafcutter bees carry pollen dry and loose on their bellies and forage close to their nests - making them super efficient cross-pollinators for our gardens. Simply set up the bee house, place nesting materials and bee cocoons inside, and watch the bees get to work pollinating and building their nests. Raising gentle solitary bees only takes about two hours per year!

Choose a kit based on when you want pollination; spring with mason bees, summer with leafcutter bees, or dual with both. Spring and summer kits allow you to order either all natural reeds (bees #1 nesting material, but non-reusable) or wood trays (reusable).

Cabin Bee House Specifications:

  • Peaked roof with 2″ overhang to drain excess rain
  • Keyhole slot in back for easy installation and removal
  • Size: 10" H x 8.5" W x 9" D
  • Center cross pieces can be removed for 48 or 78-cavity wood tray use
  • Twin Cocoon Hatchery drawers for bee release
  • Made of Paulownia wood

Choose a kit based on when you want pollination; spring with mason bees, summer with leafcutter bees, or dual with both mason and leafcutter bees.

Note: The nesting materials included in our Complete Kits will NOT fill the house entirely. The bit of open space between the nesting materials and the roof allows for easy placement and removal of the nesting materials and allows room for you to be creative. Some people choose to fill the gap with colorful artistic materials, and others choose to purchase additional nesting materials to fill the space. The choice is yours!
