Mason bee release shelter

Posted by blueberrytalk on March 16, 2016

This shelter will accommodate over 1400 cocoons. Above the nest compartment there is an enclosed space for plastic release trays. This space is protected from rodents. When Mason bees emerge from their cocoons they exit by the screen at the back.
