Learning How to Care for Solitary Mason and Leafcutter Bees

September 28, 2023 @ 3:45 pm - 5:00 pm

Busy mason bees.

Bees are becoming an increasingly popular addition to gardens – but not just honeybees. If you’re thinking of hosting bees in your yard, releasing solitary MASON bees should be top on your list. Solitary bees make up 90% of all bees on the planet and are one of mother nature’s bet pollinators! On average, each mason bee can visit over 2,000 blooms daily and pollinate 95% of the flowers they land on in comparison to the meticulous pollen gathering of honeybees who only have a 5% pollination rate.

This makes them the unsung heroes of the pollinating world! Not only can they help us grow more food, but their belly flopping pollen collecting methods make surrounding habitat healthier. Solitary bee activity helps filter out pollutants from air and water streams – increasing overall ecosystem health everywhere these little bees buzz around.
