Hi! We're so glad you're interested in learning to harvest mason bees! Harvesting mason bee cocoons is a quick and easy way to keep mason bee populations healthy. But, if that wasn't enough, harvesting also allows you to:

  • Take inventory of your mason bee population;
  • Share your extra mason bee cocoons (and knowledge) with local friends and neighbors; and 
  • Participate in Crown Bees' nationwide Bee Buy Back Program.

We know harvesting can be a little intimidating for first-timers, so we've created this downloadable PDF with video links to help you along the way. The guide is kept simple on purpose; however, if you're interested in a more detailed version, please check our full-length Harvesting Mason Bees article. 

Good Luck and Happy Harvesting!
