    Hi! I am a teacher in Pennsylvania who has just started teaching Environmental Science this year. I have stumpled upon the topic of mason and leafcutter bees and I’m completely amazed by them! Currently I have my students repurposing wooden pallets into bee houses and filling them with bamboo and predrilled wood pieces.

    Seeing that we can order kits from you would be perfect to add to our curriculum but I’m seeing that they are all sold out. Is there anyway I could order some and or get on a list to be involved during the next ‘cycle’.

    From a classroom standpoint, our administration will need to put this purchase ‘out to bid’, so please let me know if there is a special rate that you could provide us for several kits (with bees).

    Thank you so much,

      If you would like me to include extra brochures in your order, please let me know. They are great visuals for the kids to see the bees. I can also give you stickers.

      Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for supporting solitary pollinators!
