Collection: Tubes, liners & reeds

Healthy bees are a result of quality nesting materials.

Many garden stores and internet sites sell cheap mass produced Mason bee homes using bamboo or drilled wooden blocks. These types of nesting holes do not allow easy harvesting of cocoons, which is paramount in eliminating parasites that will otherwise drastically reduce your bee population.

  • Spring mason bees prefer nesting holes around 8mm in diameter
  • Summer Leafcutter bees prefer nesting holes around 6mm in diameter
  • Wild native bees prefer nesting holes of various sizes from 4 to 10 mm

Natural reeds are the most attractive to nesting bees but are single use as they must be split open to harvest the cocoons. Cardboard tubes and liners are a lower cost option and only slightly less attractive to bees. Kept dry the cardboard tubes are reusable just replace the easily opened paper liner.
