2. Bee house

This Bee House is handmade in the USA. Mason bees & leafcutters are native bees known for their ability to pollinate plants.

Mason bees can pollinate far more plants than honeybees. They are solitary and therefore have no hive to defend (meaning they don’t need to sting you to defend it!). They use mud to build nests in small cavities like the tubes in this bee house.
