Re: Orchard Mason Bees from central NC
A picture is worth 1000 words - and your pics are gorgeous!
I bought an untreated 4x4 but haven't hung a block yet. I had blue mason bees in my wildflowers last year, so they are nesting around here somewhere. My elm tree is suspicious, the east side has woodpecker holes about the right diameter, about 8 foot up. Where did you order the parchment tubes? Or can they just be ordinary paper?
Time to be a gypsy again, 2014 will be my prep year, my bees want a better area with actual rainfall.
