We would not have flowers, veggies, or fruit on your trees if bees were not pollinating them. The Orchard Mason Bee is the most effective pollinator of all. This non-stinging pollinator is unlike honey bees in that it will not sting people. Instead of hives, they reside in tiny holes. Numerous nesting cavities in this bee fortress draw the amiable orchard mason bee. Full-size images, exploded view diagrams, lumber layouts, and step-by-step directions are all included in this woodworking plan.
These hive plans are for a 2-frame wide hive with a pair of deep frames, and 3 pairs of mediums. Both sides open and a drawer at the bottom can remove what falls through the screened bottom. The feeder can be opened for cleaning when outdoors. Bees enter & exit through a 1 inch inside diameter pipe fitting on the opposite side from the feeder, with clear tubing leading outdoors.
