Order mason bees and release when daytime temperatures consistently reach 50-55°F. Nightime temperature lows is not important.

Mason bees are gentle, non-aggressive bees that are important pollinators for fruits, vegetables, and flowers, often surpassing the effectiveness of honeybees! They are solitary bees native to North America, and are named "mason bees" because they collect clay rich mud to build walls in between each egg. In nature, female mason bees build their nests in hollow plant stems, tree holes, rock crevices, or any small hole that is at least 6 inches deep.

Our Mason Bee Hut Kit is a simple and easy way to raise these gentle pollinators!

Mason bees are seasonal pollinators and are only available for purchase from February through May.
