Rent Mason Bees
Company Description:Thank you for viewing our virtual booth! We hope to answer some of your questions about our solitary bees and how to host them here. If you want to learn more, please visit our website at www.rentmasonbees.com or contact us directly at email@example.com or (206) 954-2175.
WHAT DO WE PROVIDE? We provide two types of solitary bees for spring and summer pollination: blue orchard mason bees and leafcutter bees. We will mail your bee kit right to your front door with everything you need to host these gentle bees in your yard.
WHY RENT? The number one question we were asked last year at the tradeshow was "Why rent?" Mason bee nests and cocoons need to be cleaned each year to prevent pests, such as pollen mites and Houdini flies which lay their eggs on the mason bee pollen, and diseases from devastating your bee population. When you rent from us, you don’t have to worry about any of this. You send your nest block back to us and WE DO ALL THE CLEANING FOR YOU. We also store the bees in an ideal environment during their winter hibernation, so they are ready to emerge as soon as temperatures warm up in spring.
Additionally, many of the bees that are propagated through our rental program are used the following spring to pollinate fruit crops, and we work closely with growers to teach them how to safely use mason bees on their farm. Our unique service offers you a way to foster healthy bee populations and promote sustainable food production, with minimal commitment.
Please visit our website to learn more about solitary bees, the best plants for pollinators and download our free educational materials that are ideal for virtual and at-home learning. Please reach out to us with any questions.
