Our mason bee houses are crafted in our mill using the same amazing lumber we use for our bee hives!
Mason bees are native, solitary bees that nest in tubes. They pollinate a smaller, immediate area in early spring, and then hibernate until the next year. They are excellent guests in fruit orchards and home and community gardens. Mason bees do not produce honey, and are considered 'stingless.'
By making mason bee houses, we further minimize our waste by using every scrap and off-cut from our clear, FSC Certified lumber. Houses are sanded for a smooth finish and can be sealed with tung oil for extra water runoff and longevity. Small key notch in back for easy hanging.
