By now I am sure you have heard about what is happening to our bees. These tiny workers help bring food to our table.  This year I saw many of my zucchini flowers not grow into zucchinis; it seems they did not get pollinated.

We Need Our Bees for Survival!

Last year 33% of US bee colonies died! Between 1947 and 2005, the number of bees in the United States declined from 5.9 million to 2.4 million.

If this trend continues 1/3 of our food crops will be in danger of disappearing,  including foods many of us love, like apples, blueberries, broccoli, and almonds.

Each day, a bee colony can pollinate 300 million flowers.  This is why our food crops, are so dependent on the bee.

Mason Bees are expert pollinators!  They are one of the earliest pollinators available and for most plants, they are far more effective than Honey Bees.  They are not as susceptible to the viruses and molds that attack the Honey Bee, and by encouraging our native species you are helping to restore the balance of nature.
