At Urban Pollinators, we believe in reusing and recycling as much as we can in order to reduce our carbon footprint. After experimenting for a few years, we’ve found a source of cans that we can recycle to create an ideal mason bee house. Instead of making a fancy label for the can that would just fade in the sun or be washed out in the rain, we leave the metal bare, leaving you the option to paint it.
Our Recycler House will hold 30 folded empty tubes, leaving room to add either five folded nesting tubes or 10 single, six-inch nesting tubes containing bees.
Mounting hardware included. Nesting tubes and bees sold separately.
Note: All mason bee houses should be placed on a south or southeast facing wall, low enough to catch the morning sun, but near enough to the eaves to protect them from the rain and wind.
