Mason bees spin a strong silken cocoon that is waterproof and protects them in a hard encasing.
At Rent Mason Bees we offer a way for people to be a part of their food source and help native solitary pollinators, but not have to worry about doing the fall cleaning which is critical when hosting mason bees.
When you release mason bees into your yard, you help solitary bee populations which have been on the decline, enrich your habitat because of their incredible belly flopping pollination skills and in doing so strength your ecosystem. Pollinated trees and plants grow bigger and stronger which strengthens soil, provides cleaner air and feeds other wildlife.
Solitary bees are non-stinging and live and work by themselves. They gather their own food, find their own nests and lay their own eggs. They don’t make honey or live in a hive, which makes them non-aggressive. They are incredible pollinators that visit over 2,000 blossoms a day and are known for “belly flopping” onto blossoms, gathering pollen all over their bodies which enables them to pollinate 95% of the flowers they land on.
