How do I protect bees from birds?

Here are a few ideas you can use to help protect birds and bees in your yard.

  1. Place bird feeders out of direct line of sight of your native bee house.

  2. Place hardware cloth with openings that are no smaller than ¾” across the face of your mason bee house.

  3. Fill any empty space within your bee house with rocks, sticks, or crumpled paper. Filling the empty space will deter birds from nesting inside your bee house.
