What are Mason Bees?
Mason bee, Osmia lignaria, also known as the blue orchard bee, is friendly and an efficient pollinator for fruit such as apple, cherry, almond and blueberry. Beediverse houses are an excellent way to encourage these pollinators into your garden.
What type of system do Beediverse use to manage mason bees?
Mason bee nests at Beediverse are based on the Stacked Tray-System (STS) that consists of stacked pieces of plastic or wood Quicklock trays with grooves. These create nesting tunnels when stacked. Our nests are designed to be taken apart in the fall for cleaning and to rid of any harmful pests. With 20 years of experience in Mason Bee keeping, Beediverse offers top-quality, durable and long-lasting products carefully designed to suit the needs of our customers.
Go GREEN! Beediverse nests are based on the Quicklock system that is durable, attractive and re-useable season after season.
