DIY: Mason Bee house (for a more productive garden!)

Masonry Bees that are so integral to our ecosystem. Unlike honeybees or bumble bees, the Masonry Bee is a solitary bee. It has no queen or worker bees. They don’t produce honey or beeswax. Other than mating, their soul purpose is to pollinate.

To ensure pollination of your raspberries, build a simple orchard mason bee house by drilling holes in a 4x4 and giving it a shingle-roof overhang. Secure the house to a sunny trellis pole, and the bees will come.
