  • Orchard mason bees are iridescent, greenish black with a very large housefly appearance.
  • They construct pencil sized tubes out of mud in which to store pollen and lay eggs, and will often locate in window frames, cedar shake siding and other house structures sized to their needs.
  • They hatch in March and all adults are usually dead by July.
  • These bees are efficient early Spring pollinators and are often purchased at nursery centers along with wood block houses for them to lay eggs in to hatch the following year.
  • They are generally docile, with only a mild sting.
