No, this is mostly for honey bees
Our spring mason bees and summer leafcutter bees are easy to raise, all you need to do is make sure that you provide:
Honey bees and hole-nesting bees can live in harmony together and while they do not attack each other, they are both competing for the same flowers. A biodiverse environment rich with a variety of flowers is the best habitat for bees.
It takes around 300-foot mason bees to fully pollinate one fruit tree or 10 leafcutter bees to pollinate a small 20' x 20' vegetable plot. It takes about 1,000 honey bees to do the same work! We suggest counting your flowering trees, plants, and natural growth to calculate the number of bees you need for pollination.
Male and female bees have different lifespans and the bees actually spend most of their life developing or hibernating in their cocoons. Male mason and leafcutter bees will fly as adults for about 2 weeks after emergence from their cocoons.
