Cedar Mason Bee House Planter
Plants and bees happily exist together! Add more valuable bee pollinators to your garden with the Combination Mason Bee House & Planter. Bees have a cool place to thrive and repopulate with a plant to pollinate in close vicinity. The heavy duty bee house includes a planter with fabric liner with drain hole, which provides adequate space and drainage for plant while keeping bee nest tubes dry.
Mason bees are attracted to flowering plants, such as vegetables, fruit trees & bushes, flowering annuals, perennials, and vine plants. Their work in the spring can determine the volume of fruit or vegetables that will be available to harvest.
Place ideally near a source of mud, and for best results, use near flowering plants known to attract bees. Bee balm is perfect example.
The fiberboard nesting tubes should be replaced each spring after mason bees have emerged from their nests or early spring if using an emergence box for last year's occupied tubes (replacement tubes sold separately).
