Thinking about starting a bee sanctuary?
Emily and Rebekah at Bee Thinking cover all of the basics about solitary bees including their life cycles, how they differ from honeybees and much more.
Mason bees and leafcutter bees are incredibly efficient native pollinators. These solitary bees nest in already existing holes, often made by woodpeckers or carpenter bees. Providing an already made home for them in your yard offers more nesting opportunities for them, and a great pollination source for you.
Once you know the basics about gentle bees, Emily and Rebekah discuss where to hang your bee house, what you need to provide your bees with, where to get bees, and how to harvest cocoons. Visit the Bee Thinking site for even more tips on helping native pollinators at home.
