Mason Bee House

Asked February 28, 2019, 9:38 PM EST

Hi there, I was at your PCC Learning Garden. I see you have Mason Bee Houses there. I was wondering if you have plans for those? I'm building them for Lenox Elementary School's garden. Thanks so much. Dale Rosenthal

Thank you for your question, Dale. I am not familiar with the specific Mason bee hives at PCC, but there are many plans (instructions) for making them. Here is an OSU article on the topic: https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/catalog/files/project/pdf/em9130_0.pdf and here is another article with more specific ideas and variations: https://pollinators.msu.edu/publications/building-and-managing-bee-hotels-for-wild-bees/ I hope these are helpful. Good luck!
