Need bees for your Native Bee House?
Hello everyone, and happy 2012! Last fall I removed the Orchard Mason Bee cocoons from their paper straws liners so they could be cleaned and sorted, and now they’re ready to head to their new homes.
I recommend a starter colony of (20) bees for a house that has 30 – 40 nesting holes, since not all bees will survive to emerge. I try to approximate the ratio that is found in nature, which is about 40% female and 60% male.
I’ll be selling packages of (20) loose native bee cocoons for $25, which includes shipping and handling. If you’re interested in purchasing a package or two, please visit our online store.
NOTE: This offer is only valid until my supply of cocoons runs out, and we will not ship bees after April 1st, or after the daytime temps are consistently in the 50′s.
