Will mason bees or leafcutter bees work in my yard?

Our spring mason bees and summer leafcutter bees are easy to raise, all you need to do is make sure that you provide:

  • Plenty of open blooms, bees can visit 2,000+ flowers per day
  • A healthy yard free of lawn care chemicals Set out cocoons during the temperatures that are right for them
  • Natural nest-building materials like moist clayey mud or leaves
  • Nesting holes in the right size
  • A bee house install in a location with morning sun

Please bee patient if it looks like bees are not nesting in your bee house. Some of our gardeners will call back weeks later and tell us that they found nesting holes filled even though they never saw any bee activity.
