Mason Bee Location

I put up a mason bee house on April 6th and still no activity yet. I have it facing North East and about 5'5" above the ground. Should I place it in a different location. I do have a spot that faces South East and 3' or less in height.

RE: Mason Bee Location

They look for places with morning sun.

They need to warm up in the sun to start feeding, so the SE location would be better.
