Crown Bees' owner, Dave Hunter, dives deep into the world of the curious mason and leafcutter bees.
The national media regularly features dire stories on honey bee colony collapse and its danger to our food supply. But there's another unsung bee that has the potential to save the planet: the mason bee.
Mason Bee Revolution explains how docile, hard-working, solitary mason bees (and their compatriots, the leafcutter bees) are even more productive pollinators than honey bees. Keeping solitary bees can be a fun, easy backyard hobby for gardeners, conservationists, foodies, and families everywhere.
Mason Bee Revolution is an easy-to-follow guide to keeping both mason and leafcutter bees. It tells you how to set up, care for, and harvest solitary bees and what types of plants and habitats encourage mason and leafcutter bees. It also provides general information on other common pollinators and bee-related facts, projects, and personalities.
