Mason Bees Have Arrived

Burns Feed Store has just received a shipment of mason bee cocoons from ORCON, Inc. Each tube holds 6 cocoons. Mason Bees are solitary bees, and are highly effective pollinators. They are able to do the pollinating work of up to 120 honey bees. Mason bees hatch in late winter and early spring and are active into May. Tubes of cocoons should be placed outside soon, ideally in a mason bee nester. Each cocoon tube costs $17.99 and the bee nester is $19.99.
