Blue Orchard Mason Bees are a species commonly found in North America and can be released in your garden to successfully pollinate your flowers, trees, shrubs, fruits and vegetables. Mason Bee cocoons can be released when conditions are optimal, when daytime temperatures have reached about 10-13°C (50-55°F) or 10% of spring blooms are happening. Simply release them in your yard and provide your garden and neighbourhood with instant pollination and biodiversity. Female bees will return to the area they hatched to lay their eggs and having a pollen bee nest available to them will ensure the bees continue to flourish in your area.

WBU Barrie is proud to sell Mason Bee Cocoons along with some of the best BEE HOUSES and PRODUCTS for backyard bees!
