Native Bee’s are Awesome. New Genetics coming by mail to join my local populations of Mason and Leaf Cutter Bees here on the farm.
My orders are in and on the way, I have big plans in regards to my Mason and Leaf Cutter bee’s I will be increasing the size of our local population and I will also be working with local private larger scale gardeners and also community gardens in placing houses in their areas.
If all goes well, I will have Native Mason and Leaf Cutter Bee Coons available for sale in the winter/early spring of 2020 for across Canada. More on that at a later point.
Here is what I am so excited about! I ordered in a viewing house so that I can take lots of photos, and short video’s for you over the season. You can take the clear wall off and properly clean and use this year after year. I will be looking into the gear needed to get us the best viewing and photo in this regard, I have a great Macro on my new camera for photos but I am might need a different plan in regards to getting a good quality video or two.
I have had these wonderful amazing bees working hard on the farm for years now and I firmly believe that the mason bee and the fact that you can control and stagger its hatching times is a huge part of THE answer in regards to unstable climate change in regards to small homestead/gardener when it comes to early spring pollination needs.
