I've started 4 honeybee hives this spring and they are all doing very well so far but been reasearching the mason bee recently and was needing some guidance on starting out with this hobby.

What all do I need to do to get started? I've read about the mason bee homes, etc but was curious how to get all this together from scratch. Where do start?

I live in east Tn so are there certain species best suited for my region? Do I order my bees now and where from?

Thanks. Any info would be appreciated.
