Each kit comes fully assembled and includes a real wood house (painted black), custom nesting block containing over 150 leafcutter bees in the plugged holes. This complete kit comes with a hook on back making it ready to hang. If your backyard has a permanent bee home, consider renting the small leafcutter bee insert.
After bees emerge and begin their pollination duties, they will return to the nesting block to lay eggs in the empty holes. These gentle pollinators are solitary bees like Mason bees, but pollinate during the summer months of July and August making them ideal for vegetable gardeners. These bees are excellent for pollinating tomatoes, squash and cucumbers and all summer blooming plants. These gentle pollinators dart around so quickly, they are hard to spot.
