Instructions: Mason Bee Mud Mix

Moist clayey mud located within about 25ft of the bee house is vital for successfully raising spring mason bees. Our Mason Bee Mud Mix is 9 oz of dry clay mix that can supply about 100 nesting female bees for a season.

Instructions
Test your soil for a dough or clay texture when wet. Dig a small hole with vertical walls and add Mason Bee Mud Mix if your soil is loamy, sandy, or lacks clay mud. Slowly add ½ cup of water to the bag of dry Mason Bee Mud Mix and knead, add mud mixture on the vertical walls of your dug hole and keep the mud moist. Do not use a bowl or container because the mud mix will become dry or remain too wet. Use the Mason Bee Mud Box if your mud mix dries out within a day.
