Release of Mason bees intensifies

Posted by blueberrytalk on April 20, 2010

Mason bees have been coming out of their cocoons for some time now but recent warmth has caused a surge of released bees. This is in perfect timing with the opening of blueberry blossoms.

 Mason bees are cool. They no sooner emerge than our video shows them mating!

    Great photo!!! I can almost hear them chewing through those cocoons. But…it would be nice if you had some video.
