Mason bees are? small docile bees that are great early season pollinators for fruit trees, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and other spring flowering plants. Get your garden started right and help the declining bee population by making a four-by-four-inch house for mason bees that should sit about six to eight feet off the ground in a sunny spot. We cut the lumber and you put the house together. This is a fun family activity and lesson in conservation.
