Thank you for your question. It should be on a shaded (not south or west) outside wall under eaves, to protect it from rain. Know that we are nearing the end of the time Mason bee females are laying eggs, so they may not use your house this year. Here is a good publication: https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/em9130 Good luck!
