I have an unexpected heat wave, what do I do?

Spring Mason Bees: Watch to see if the abnormally warm spring weather caused your blooms to open earlier than usual. If flowers are still closed, keep your bees in the fridge until pollen is available and the daytime high is consistently around 55F(13C). Mason bee cocoons should be released by mid-May.

Summer Leafcutter Bees: Intact leafcutter bee cocoons can’t regulate their temperatures above 90F(32C), bring them indoors and release adult bees as they emerge (in the early morning) until the weather cools. Emerged adult leafcutter bees can manage the heat waves.
