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. There's a common bee species known as the Mason Bee—they're up to 90% more efficient at pollinating plants than honeybees! These friendly beneficial insects don't sting, but they do need a place to call home. Mason bees nest in wood holes created by woodpeckers or beetles, as they are incapable of creating holes themselves. Setting up our easy-to-use Mason Bee Nest Kit will encourage them to thrive and repay you by pollinating your plants. Kit comes with a starter home and 25 tubes. During the winter, maximize your local population by storing the tubes indoors to protect bee larvae from the elements and any predators while they hibernate.
