I live in Washington State and I have just put up a colony of Mason Bees...a whopping 10 cocoons!! I have always wanted to have honey bees but thought I would start somewhere a bit easier. I would love to have any one's opinion on city/neighborhood keeping. People here in Seattle 'rent' out hives. It's not TOO city where I live! I hope to hear from someone! Maybe some advice about my little mason beauties? Thanks so much!
