Mason Bee Revolution: How The Hardest Working Bee Can Save The World One Backyard At A Time

The national media regularly features dire stories on honeybee colony collapse and its danger to our food supply. But there's another, unsung bee that has the potential to save the planet the mason bee.Mason Bee Revolution explains how docile, hard-working, solitary mason bees (and their compatriots, the leafcutter bees) are even more productive pollinators than honeybees, and keeping them can be a fun, easy, backyard hobby for gardeners, conservationists, foodies, and families everywhere. Mason Bee Revolution is an easy-to-follow guide to keeping both mason and leafcutter bees. It tells you how to set up, care for, and harvest your own bees and what types of plants and habitat encourage mason and leafcutter bees, as well as provides general information on other common pollinators and bee-related facts, projects, and personalities.

Honeybees are in big trouble, but we’ve got other options for pollinating our crops. This terrific book highlights the humble mason bee and all it has to offer, and sets out clear, well-illustrated instructions for introducing them into your home garden or farm. It’s a neat addition to my gardening routines!

Now I have mason bees in my yard pollinating away! They're also laying the eggs for next year's pollination team. So easy. The book has great tips for making the bees work in your situation.

Beyond informative. I do non-GMO gardening and very concerned for the welfare of our bees. I will be getting materials together to start off next season's garden. We already have native plants, red-bud trees, kwanzan cherry, blueberries, Bradford pear and massive amounts of clover in the yard. I am really looking forward to this experience and will be putting up bee homes for both mason and leaf cutters. Can't wait to see who shows up! Thank you.

A must have resource for anyone that invest the time and expense for fruit and vegetable plants. Followed the directions of the author and the same space that yielded fewer than a dozen tomatoes last year has produced hundreds this season and is still going strong.

additional information of a very interesting subject matter. This is something that is very important, for all. This book is full of answers to having mason bees. Good Buy.

How am I only learning about these little saviors now? I have a new favorite bee and a list of backyard projects to get to.
