For New-bees, the Mason Bee is the commonly used name for the bee species Osmia of the family Megachilidae. Bees included under the mason bee genus are the horn-faced bee, the blueberry bee, the red mason bee and the orchard mason bee. Mason bees are active in gardens for approximately 4-6 weeks, primarily during early spring. And for those who raise them, harvest and share them, or first-time cocoon buyers... Mason Bees are simply fascinating little creatures bring into your garden and so much fun to watch. 

This is our sixth season (2024) raising, harvesting, and pollinating our gardens with Mason Bees. This unusual little creature can pollinate 100x more than a Honeybee -- during it's short springtime pollination season. Mason Bees cannot replace Honeybees. Mason Bees are solitary bees, meaning they don't participate in communal activities. So basically, they are loners.

The primary worker bee is female and they are all queens. Male bees only live long enough to leave sperm samples with as many Female bees as they can, they get a week or so, then their life is over.


The queens however will go through a daily routine of collecting pollen in their furry little bodies and nectar in their mouths. Then making a ball of food, laying a egg, deciding whether it should be male or female and making it so. They will collect mud, build a wall and begin again -- building little chambers and filling them. She will continue to do this every day for about three months. Once her wings are worn out she will pass away in her sleep.

The eggs that were laid will become larva who will eat the food left in their chamber, create a cocoon and go to sleep until spring. Around mid-April to as late as May 15, then the cycle will begin again.
