You may have already - and inadvertently - encountered Mason Bees. My web site is designed with the backyard gardener in mind. If you have a few fruit trees and would like to ensure a good crop, then you need to know about the Mason Bee. This gentle little bee is often mistaken for a garbage fly, just because it sort of looks like one. However, if you see a bluish-black irridescent “fly” on a flower, you can be rest assured that it is possibly a bee.
As you observe how this bee lives, you’ll can why it is given the name of “mason” bee. Much like a mason, this bee constructs walls of mud for sealing each of the larvae cells.

My section on
F.A.Q. will probably answer most of your questions. However, do feel free to email me with any additional questions, comments or your own person experiences with this amazing and industrious pollinator.
