How to upgrade your native bee house for summer leafcutter bees
You can reuse your spring mason bee house to raise summer leafcutter bees.
Just remove mason bee nesting holes and replace with leafcutter bee nesting holes.
Summer Leafcutter Bee Benefits:
Super pollinators of your summer blooming fruits and vegetables like tomatoes, peppers, squash, melons, and peas - just about any flower. Gentle solitary bees who only fly about 300 feet daily as they forage for nectar and pollen.
Leafcutters are easy to raise bees who prefer 6mm sized holes and use soft pliable leaves like those of rose, hosta, lilac, and pea to build their protective leafy cocoons.
