So excited for my 1st mason bee harvest. 🐝 It worked! It worked! I had a more bountiful garden & flowers than ever before & I have even more cocoons for next spring. 🌸 🌺 (those aren’t pinto beans in the fridge 😂) 🐝🐝 #savethebees #savetheearth #masonbees #masonbeecocoons #masonbee #beekeeper at Vashon, Washington

@honeyandthehivenc

Keeping honeybees just isn’t for everyone. If that is you, fear not! You can still help support pollinators. These are mason bee hives - mason bees are a small native bee. Hang these sweet bamboo houses in your yard or garden to create habitat for them! #masonbees #pollinators #savethebees #nativebees #beekeeping #honeyandthehive

More adventures in mason bee keeping! Today in the bee box we found fly larvae and Monodontomerus parasitoid wasps along with healthy mason bee cocoons. Anyone know how the flies got in there? They look like Drosophila or similar. If anyone wants a maggot video, just ask I’ve already made 3. Any ideas @crown_bees ? #osmialignaria #Monodontomerus #bees #masonbees #osmia #diptera #pollen #beebox at Columbia City, Seattle

Woodland Green 1 🐝 And now I’m utterly confused 🤔 Within this hotel was a little orange-vented hatchling from this year. I found her confused and covered in pollen and after safe guarding her cane when cracking it I found four of her babees and a long area loaded with loose pollen. Considering the amount of babies these little bees seem to produce, I’m guessing she moved into this hotel towards the end of her life. I also have my first red Mason/leaf cutter bee shared bamboo cane, though the leaf cutters were not successful. Seeing as the red Mason is a spring bee it would’ve had to chew past the summer bees to get out? Then there are the parasites situated within the Red Mason cells and this is puzzling...some cells failed, but even with these parasites present in other cell chambers, other red Mason’s have successfully spun cocoons and developed?!? I’ve searched through each effected chamber and where cocoons have developed, I’ve candled and cleaned them and they’re all fully formed Mason bees who are a-wiggling and a-buzzing! 🤔 So that’s kinda got me stumped! Not your average chalcid and the spaghetti poo from whatever this parasite is, is new to me this year... So in this hotel 25 leaf cutter babies, 4 orange-vented Mason bees and 29 Red Mason bees (10 of which are in quarantine nurseries). *wibble* 😅🐝 #beehotel #emsbeeandbee #overwintering #babees #bee #solitarybeekeeper #masonbees #beekeeping #solitarybees #leafcutterbee #osmialeaiana #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #naturelovers #pollinators #bughotel #🐝 #entomology

Thanksgiving buzz 🐝 First Mason Bee fall harvest with 40 cocoons and counting! We’ve been “busy bees” this afternoon preparing them for next Spring. Fun facts about Mason Bees: They are a solitary bee so each female is her own queen, they don’t make honey however only two or three can pollinate an entire mature apple tree, and only the females can sting if squeezed or threatened. Which is good news since I have a thing for getting stung by bees... #masonbees #masonbeehouse #nature #masonbeecocoons #pollination #fall #beekeeping at Chinook Cove

@rentmasonbees

After washing, the bees are spread out on racks and will dry in our drying tower under a fan for 24 hours. The next day the bees are “candled” to pick our any non viable cocoons. Picture 3 shows light passing through a cocoon that does not contain a bee. They will be picked out along with any remaining debris. #fallcleaning #masonbees #1000sofcocoons

@beeandbloom

By now, your bee houses for mason and leaf cutter bees have been active all spring and summer. Most or all of your tubes are filled and now it’s time to harvest! - Eggs laid earlier in the year are now waiting in their cocoons for next spring. To increase their chances of survival we harvest our mason bee cocoons and overwinter them in a safe space - the fridge. - Working in a cool room (like a garage) you’ll want to separate mason bee tubes from leafcutter bee tubes. Mason bees cap their tubes with mud walls, while leafcutter bees use leaves, petals and plant resins. You can see mason bee tubes on the left, leafcutter bee tubes on right. Leafcutter bees are fragile still at this stage. We like to store them in a mesh bag in a safe, but cool area like a garage or shed until spring. - Mason bee tubes can be split open or unwrapped if using cardboard tubes. With a stick or pencil gently push the cocoons out of their tube. Separate any debris (pollen, bee frass, mud) from the cocoons. Be on the look out for pin holes in cocoons and not properly developed larvae, this could indicate parasites or fungal disease. Discard any suspicious cocoons. - You can then wash cocoons in cold water. We add about one tablespoon of bleach to every cup of water used. This helps protect the cocoons from fungal infections like chalkbrood. - Allow the cocoons to dry, and store the cocoons in a dedicated tupperware container in the fridge. Cut a couple vent holes through the lid for air exchange and add a small sponge or folded piece of paper towel to one side. Add a small amount of water just to dampen it. This keeps the bees at the proper humidity. Re-wet once a month or as needed. - Congrats on your harvested cocoons! They will be safe and sound until next spring when they can get their pollination on.

After the bees have been sifted, it’s time for a wash! They are soaked in a water bath to remove mites and debris and then sprayed with the garden host to get off any pollen or remaining clay. They are alive and dormant inside of their waterproof cocoons. #beewashing #masonbees #wintercare #gettingreadyforhibernation

Another step towards a larger and far more beautiful garden! The floor and hind wall of the garage have been sawed through. The right part of the floor and the right wall will remain, the left will make way for a nature-rich pond. The wall on the right will be covered with nesting facilities for insects and will get a small roof covered with slates that came from the roof of Nijmegen's city centre church; St. Stevenskerk. The rest of the floor wil Serve as a path alongside the insect wall so I can comfortably make loads of observations! #nature #garden #demolition #pond #insects #insectenhotel #vijver #sloop #garage #tuin #operatiesteenbreek #hohohoosbui #bees #masonbees #plasterbees #metselbijen #behangersbijen #stevenskerk #Nijmegen #steeneruitgroenerin #leisteen at Beek, Berg en Dal

Tonight's date nite is harvesting the Mason bee cocoons! #datenight #masonbees you have to wash them because they're covered in frass and possibly mold spores, but they're waterproof so it's cool. After they dry they'll go in an insulated but not airtight box in the fridge. We'll plant things for them to eat and let them wake up in the early spring. #herestospring

@sprigglys_beescaping

Although honey bees are great at making honey 🍯 they are actually not the best pollinators and that is because of how they evolved. Honey bees have #corbiculae (the pollen pockets on their legs) which help them efficiently collect pollen and bring it back to their hive. There in lies the problem! They are too efficient at taking it back and only pollinate around 15% of the flowers they land on. Some of our 4,000 species of North American native bees, like a mason bee, can pollinate close to 99% of the flowers it lands on. That's because they have no corbiculae ( #pollenpockets) but they are COVERED in hair, allowing them to get pollen all over their bodies that then easily falls off onto the next flower they visit 🌼🐝🌼 Some studies have shown that it takes around 100 honey bees to do the job of 1 mason bee 🐝😮🙌👍 #themoreyouknow . . . #honeybees #honeybee #europeanhoneybee #bee #bees #savethebees #nativebeesneedhelptoo #masonbees #weneedthosebees #beescaping #beelove #beelieve #beelife #beelover #beesknees #beesofinstagram #beesponsible #pollinators #pollinator #pollination #pollinate #savethepollinators #savepollinators #beneficialinsects #insectlove #insectlover at Lake Junaluska, North Carolina

My second beehouse. Handcrafted for our native solitary bees, mason bees and leaf-cutter bees. The mason bees are, in fact super-pollinators and can pollinate 3-times as many plants as a honey bee and are crucial to our ecosystem. They reside is small holes and crevices and don't tend to travel more than a few hundred feet from their nest. Leaf cutter bees, on the other hand, will bore into those two slats of wood to create their habitat. So, if you have a garden or know someone who does, get yourself a proper beehouse. #forthrightart #4thrt #beehouse #masonbees #superpollinators # leafcutterbees #bees #beeslivesmatter #handcrafted #reclaimedwood #salvagedwood #salvagedcopper #copper #handhammered #folsom #folsomcalifornia #norcal #california
