Q. What does an incremental or staggered release of bee cocoons mean?
An incremental or staggered release of bee cocoons means that you release mason bees a couple of weeks apart.
Since female mason bees only fly for about 6 weeks, incremental release means you could extend your pollination season. A staggered cocoon release is helpful if you have unpredictable weather, which is typical in the spring.
Storms, cold-snaps, and heavy rain can harm or kill flying mason bees. By releasing a portion of your cocoons at a time, you increase the bee’s chance of survival.
