Mason Bees at the Bulkhead

Mason Bees are a native pol­li­na­tor to BC. Unlike hon­ey bees they are soli­tary so they don’t live in hives and pro­duce hon­ey. To nest they seek out holes in wood where they can lay their eggs. Typ­i­cally a Mason Bee would find holes pro­duced by wood­peck­ers, but this form of habi­tat can be cre­ated to attract Mason Bees to cer­tain areas for increased pollination.
