Our quality nesting trays for mason bee houses are crafted from sugar pine that is sustainably-harvested in the Pacific Northwest. Each tray features nesting cavities, each measuring 8mm wide - the ideal size for spring orchard mason bees. Simply slide the trays into your mason bee house and watch native pollinators take up residence in their new home! Once their season ends, you can easily harvest the cocoons by separating the trays and store them in a cool, dark place until the next season. The trays are reusable year after year.
