Spring Total Accessories Package for Mason Bees


Availability: In stock

Short Description

When it comes to protecting, raising and maintaining your native bees, the Total Accessories Package provides everything you need in one convenient package.



InvitaBee Plus+ Mason Bee Attractant

An exclusive USDA-patented pheromone attractant. Your mason bees, and nearby wild mason bees, will have a higher probability of nesting. Also includes 5 natural lake reeds to visually attract mason bees.

HumidiBee Cocoon Humidifier

Hibernating mason bee cocoons survive best when stored at a constant 34° F (1° C) temperature at humidity of 60-70%. Safely store your mason bee cocoons in the fridge while preventing them from drying out in modern low-humidity, frost-free refrigerators.

BeeGuard Bag

Pests want access to your developing bees! Your mud-capped nesting material should be kept in a safe, guarded enclosure to prevent parasitic wasps, birds, carpet beetles, earwigs, and other pests from eating your developing bees.

Mason Bee Mud Mix

An available clayey mud source is crucial to successfully raising mason bees. Our dry clay mix can be added to sandy or loamy soil to provide your bees with mud that they can easily pick up and use in their nesting holes.

Native Bee Guide - Second Edition

Grow More Food and Flowers - A step by step guide on how to raise hive-less bees and optimize your garden's potential. 26-pages, full color booklet.

InvitaBee Plus™

Prior to releasing mason bees or when you are looking to attract native mason bees, squirt InvitaBee container about 10 times onto the front of your nesting holes. The InvitaBee contents can be used for two locations. 

Keep out of range of children

Mix natural reeds included with nesting tubes when initially placing out nesting material in early spring. If using wood trays, natural reeds can be placed on top of or next to wood trays.


  1. Open lid of HumidiBee™ and ensure that the isolating black pad is on top of the green water absorbent blanket in the bottom of the clamshell.
  2. Place unharvested tubes OR mason bee cocoons in HumidiBee™ on top of isolating black pad.
  3. Each month, place about 1-2 tablespoons of ordinary tap water into the chamber.  Water can be poured directly over the cocoons as the silk cocoons are waterproof.
  4. Close the lid and place the HumidiBee™ in your refrigerator away from the air supply vent that blows in from the freezer compartment.  The temperature should be around 38-41˚ F.
  5. After 2-4 weeks have passed, remove the HumidiBee™ from your refrigerator to feel and determine if the green water absorbent sheet is dry, damp or wet.  The moisture content of the pad may vary due to the air circulation in your refrigerator which can speed up or slow down water evaporation.  Repeat this process monthly, adjusting the amount of water added and/or the frequency when you next check.  
  6. Moldy cocoons can be a sign that there is too much moisture in the HumidiBee™.  Do no panic if you discover mold on your cocoons.  Simply remove the mold by giving the cocoons a short 2-3 minute soak in a mild bleach solution (1 teaspoon bleach:1 cup of water) followed by a gentle blotting before they are returned to their winter quarters.  Simply cut back on the amount of water that is added each month.
  7. Check off each month that you have added water on the front label of the HumidiBee™.
  8. Note:  Be somewhat cautious when storing cocoons in a refrigerator containing ripening fruit that produces ethylene gas.  As an example, a garage refrigerator containing delicious apples may need to be occasionally opened allowing gas to escape and fresh air to be introduced.  
  9. Your hibernating bees should be able to survive 6-7 months under refrigeration.  Be careful about extending the hibernation beyond 7 months (May?) as your bees will be running out of fat reserves on which nature allows them to survive. 


Simply open the BeeGuardian™ bag and place larvae filled nesting material inside.  Secure the bag closed by squeezing the Velcro strips together.  Store the bag and nesting material (mudded holes facing up) out of direct sunlight (a garage or shed works well) in average temperatures for your area.  Developing larvae can be left in this protective environment until it is time to harvest cocoons.
