SPRING Mason Bees available February—April

  • • Release spring mason bees when daytime temperatures are consistently 55°F (13°C) or warmer AND there are open blossoms for your hungry bees.
  • • Cocoons can be refrigerated until the appropriate conditions exist for release.
  • • Place cocoons outdoors by May 1 to help ensure that bees emerge in good health with sufficient energy to begin their work.
  • • NOTE: Spring mason bees are not recommended for AK or gulf regions of FL, AL, MS, LA and TX. Current agricultural restrictions prohibit the shipment of mason bees to the state of HI, and other countries outside of the continental United States.

KEEP BEES SAFE

  • • A hot mail box can be harmful to developing or emerging bees. If you are not home during the day to retrieve your bees, consider having them shipped to your workplace.
  • • Select the Monday when you would like your bees shipped, allowing 1-5 days for delivery. When the bees ship, you will receive a USPS tracking number by email.

DISCLAIMER

  • • We care about your success and do our best to provide healthy bees. While most customers successfully raise gentle bees, it is important to understand that bees are wild insects and may not nest in your yard, may be eaten by birds, and may not emerge from their cocoons. We cannot guarantee survival, pollination of crops, or reproduction of bees.
  • • These bees are gentle, typically non-aggressive and rarely sting, While there have been no known reported cases of anaphylactic shock in association with these bees, the use and handling of solitary bees may result in allergic reaction for some users.
  • • Please consider signing up for BeeMail, our monthly newsletter, designed to provide tips and reminders to help ensure success.

20 Grade A Mason Bee Cocoons, available to ship spring 2018, February - April. Includes FREE SHIPPING!

Mason bees are perfect for fruit and nut trees, blueberries and strawberries, and virtually all flowers in your yard needing spring pollination. Each package of cocoons has 8 female and 12 male cocoons (nature’s natural ratio). The cocoons have been inspected and washed for pests and stored in a climate controlled room. Although we do all we can to ensure you are gaining healthy mason bees, nature sometimes has bees die in hibernation.

Please do NOT use wood blocks with drilled holes or bamboo holes. Your bees will fail within a few years due to pest buildup. Your success is important.

Bees will be sent “First Class Mail” and are mailed out each Monday. If you require special shipping, please email us at info@crownbees.com or call us at (425) 949-7954 to make arrangements.

If you are new to mason bees, we strongly suggest that you purchase the Total Accessories Pack for Mason Bees.

You should only purchase bees acclimated to your region for best bee health. Our bees are raised locally or received through our BeeBuyBack program whereby gardeners across the nation raise bees for us. Bees sent to you will come from a similar climate zone to help ensure the best bee health and performance.

If bees emerge during shipment, this is ok and natural for shipments between February and April. Follow instructions included with your bees.
