Joined yesterday, not a bee keeper but been messing with the mason bees for a few years. Saw lots of posting about the little guys so thought I would join the group. Lots of bees flying last few days. My two apple trees are not showing bud color yet so hope things work out OK. I read here the mason bee only works 2 or 3 weeks and not many native honey bees around here so I hope the trees bloom before my masons are finished for the year.
