  • 96-Hole Count Tray: 7" H x 5.75" W X 6" D | Fits Tower Houses
  • Each tray has blemishes of some nature.
  • For DIY Bee Houses, ensure roof is a minimum of 3” longer than wood tray dimensions.

Features:

  • Woodmaterial provides both insulation and moisture control to protect mason bee cocoons from extreme temperatures and mold caused by excess moisture.
  • Wood is a porous material, which captures and retains natural nesting scents and helps to attract next season's bees.
  • Reusable wood trays minimize year-to-year costs.
  • The front of the trays are lightly burned, creating a visual pattern that helps female mason bees locate their nesting holes and removes splinters that can harm bee’s wings.
  • Side notches lock into neighboring trays, retain alignment, and help block pests from entering the nest on the side.
  • All wood trays come with removable cardboard backing and pest-blocker fabric to prevent pests and parasites from entering the nest from the back.
