Spring Mason Bees are perfect for fruit and nut trees, berries, and spring-blooming flowers. These super pollinators visit thousands of flowers per day with a pollination rate of 99%! 

Mason bees are only active in your garden for 4-6 weeks — click here to learn more about the mason bee life cycle!

Please note: All bees ship separately from products, so they will not arrive in the same package unless otherwise specified!

We apologize, but at this time, we can only ship bees to the United States and Canada. All mason bee cocoons ship FREE via FedEx 2Day shipping in the United States or via Canada Post in Canada.

For the health of the bees, we only ship mason bee cocoons on Mondays (Feb - April) to ensure they do not get stuck in transit over the weekend. We recommend picking a shipping date that is two weeks ahead of when you expect your spring plants to bloom.

Once your bees arrive, it's up to you to provide these pollinators with healthy habitats to forage and nest to be successful. It's essential to take the time to learn how to care for your bees if you want to see healthy future generations in your yard.

Fortunately, we've got you covered. We love sharing our knowledge and helping our community of bee raisers, so each month, we spend time thoughtfully crafting our BeeMail with seasonal reminders and tips to help you be as successful as possible with our bees and products!

If you purchase bees, we strongly encourage you to sign up for our BeeMail!

    Healthy Bees from Clean Cocoons

    Posted by PGT on May 4th 2023

    Last year was a bad one for my bees and I didn’t get near the cocoons I wanted, so I ordered bees. Crown Bees was the place to go, because of their high standards of quality control. In our cold microclimate, weather doesn’t warm and fruit trees don’t bloom till the end of April, so I keep bees in hibernation. I received my cocoons May 3. About a dozen males had emerged during their two day journey, and it made me smile to see how fast they flew out of my emergence box! (Outside of course) I kept the rest chilled and cut open those cocoons, knowing the bees were on low energy reserves. I was excited to find them healthy and ready to get going. (See “How to open a mason bee cocoon” in the Mason Bee Video Library. ) Out of 120 cocoons, only four were not viable - pupae that had not fully matured. No disease, no parasites. The cocoons were very clean and obviously well cared for. *****Crown Bees response***** Thank you for this thoughtful review. Nature doesn't have all cocoons viable, but we try our best to give you success! We're here for you.

    Posted by S on May 5th 2022

    Customer service is very responsive. My order arrived with a couple items missing. It happens. I sent an email and got a very prompt response. They sent out the remaining package of bees and even threw in a couple extra packages. Thank you!

    A box o' Mason Bees

    Posted by Scott Richards on Jan 19th 2022

    I paid about $9 more here than at my local nursery (for their own bees). However, I got 20 cleaned cocoons rather than just a 2 tubes of unknown quantity and quality (8 viable after peeling and cleaning). Over a dollar and a half per bee seems rather steep, for a free roaming insect that I can't protect, but its far better than nearly $4 from my nursery. Besides, if the freak wind storm hadn't taken out all 3 of my bee houses in June I'd be happily setting out well over 60 this year, at no additional cost - assuming no loss to birds or wasps.
