Available now --native Phragmites common reed grass tubes for the culture of Mason Bees (in packets of 30 for $15.00), harvested from my farm in Metchosin . The tubes are harvested sustainably and they are the most efficient type of tube for attracting mason bees and for reducing parasite infection. For evidence see: ( See https://masonbeesforsale.com/choosing-nesting-materials/ ) .
If you don't have mason bees to release, just put out the tubes and the wild bees may fill them with cocoons for next year.
I also can demonstrate how you can make your own bee houses at no cost out of simple re-purposed and recycled materials. see http://www.gfletcher.ca/?cat=2
If you are outside of the Victoria area information on the website on how to order the tubes ---$15.00 for 30 tubes +$5.00 shipping and tax if you cant pick these up at the farm.
