Mason Bees YAY!
I am so happy!!
I only put my bees out 2 weeks ago. I purchased 40 bees from knox cellars and built a house for them.
Yesterday I checked my Mason Bees and 2 females were very busily making homes for their babies. They were in the liners head first and mud spots on the liners told me they were bringing in mud.
A couple questions please...
Do the masons coninue flying in windy or rainy weather?
I ask because yesterday we had very windy weather, severe thunderstorms and hail and while I was walking back from putting my car in the garage I checked the bees and no one was home. Where do they go?
Since I saw the bees head first in the liners (on a sunny warm day) is that a for sure sign that they were leaving me bee babies?
All of the cocoons but one are now empty, I think the one bee is dead.
