Nature's own pollinators are not as available today as they've been in the past, but your garden doesn't have to suffer for the lacking numbers. Use our Mason Bee Nest Kit to attract solitary mason bees, who have been known to outperform even honeybees! Kit comes with a starter home and 25 tubes. Bring tubes in for the winter to maximize your local population.
