Red mason bees make their home in a beepalace.

May 13th, 2014



Cavity mining bees called mason bees begin to make nests for the next generation. Sealed tubes are an indication that several larvae have been laid and the mud stopper that is used gives the mees the "mason" tag.

A group of 5 red mason bees begin nesting in a beepalace.

The tubes which look sealed are the ones which have had up to

10 red mason bee larvae laid in them.
