I want to bring honey bees to my area since they are in very short supply but I also just recently (today...lol) learned about mason bees. They seem very interesting. I was just wondering if there would be any problems having a honey bee hive and mason bee blocks near each other. Probably within 50 feet of each other. I live in a small town on a pretty small city lot (.33 acre) and plan to have one honey bee hive in my yard and I would like to try to get some mason bees to start living there too.

I suspect that all of us on this board with mason bees also have honey bees. You won't have any problem. They don't really interact.

I started raising mason bees when my honey bees tended to ignore my fruit trees (even though some hives are within 5 feet of the fruit trees), but I saw mason bees working the blossoms.
