Mason bees prefer natural reeds
Each order contains 40 natural lakebed reeds. Price discounts occur incrementally for multiple packs up to 6.
Not only do the blue orchard and hornfaced bees love them, other native mason bees will use their varying sized holes as well.
Crown Bees has obtained quality natural lake bed reeds. They have been hand cut with hole sizes that vary from about 9/32″ to 13/32″ (7-10mm) and are about 6″ long. They fit into all Crown Bee mason bee homes.
In a side-by-side comparison, a spring mason bee will prefer reeds over tubes or wood trays. We believe this is due to the variety of sizes that help the mason bee find her hole easily.
