Mason Bees in UK

by WildlifeReporter on YouTube

This video gives a close up look at Mason Bees nesting in UK.

Most Mason Bees nest in pre-existing cavities such as cavities under bark, empty snail shells or holes left by other insects in timber. They are called Mason Bees because they line and seal their nests with materials they collect from their environment, such as mud, resin and leaf pulp. These UK Mason Bees are related to Australian Resin Bees and Leafcutter Bees. All of these bees are excellent pollinators.

In Australia, Resin Bees can be encouraged to nest in drilled holes in blocks of timber in a Bee Hotel. Our Australian Resin Bees seal their nests with resin or with chewed leaf material.
