Mason Bees in Louisiana
I'm interested in Mason Bees to help pollinate a one acre fruit orchard in South Louisiana. Does anybody know of a local/regional source for getting started, somewhere in the South-East U.S.? Most of the producers I see online are Pacific NW or East Coast.
I started out thinking about a standard honey bee hive, but the wife nixxed that idea. Mason Bees seem like a good safe kid-friendly alternative.
Anybody have some experience with them on the Gulf Coast?
