We just bought a box of mason bee cocoons from Farmington Gardens for the backyard!
Found this video incredibly helpful as I have no idea what I’m doing with these. Linked from this great write up on beebuilt.com.
Dawn found a bee house for us
We’ve put it in the back corner of the yard, furthest from the house, out near the fruit trees with easy access to the garden for our new mason bee friends
We put out about half of the cocoons we bought today – and as the video suggested – we’ll put the other half out to hatch in two weeks
New neighbors are moved in – I hope they like their new home
