Mason Bee Homes

here are those photos i romised of the mason bee homes i recently put up in the backyard.  The one on the top is of the simpler model, out near the compost bins, apple tree and blueberry bushes.  The bottom photo is of the one attached to the pergola.  Because these are solitary bees and do not make honey, they are virtually non stinging, so i’m not worried about being so close to it.  You’d have to catch one in your hand and annoy it enough to sting you, and a very mild one at that.
