Welcome to Kinsman Garden Company!
It's really easy to attach our Mason Bee Houses to a wooden building, - up under the eaves, where it's sheltered and dry.
Buy a roll of Plastic Hanger Tape from the Plumbing Supplies department of a hardware store or home center. It's used to support PVC drain pipes in basements and crawl spaces. It comes with pre-punched nail holes every half inch or so.
Wrap a length around the body of your Bee House until two sets of nail holes overlap. Cut the tape.
Hammer a flat headed nail through the overlapping holes and all the way into the wood until tape is firmly held. Then slide the Bee House about half way into the snug loop.
Always install Bee Houses where they will be protected from direct rain, which would damage the Masons' mud work. Up close under the eaves of a shed, garage or porch is a perfect location.
Our Mason Bee Nest Kits do not include the bees.
If you put the nest kits outside in the very early spring (when the fruit trees are in bloom) the bees will come!
This photo shows our colony of Mason Bees. We started out with one empty nest kit five years ago and now we have a colony of over 4000 bees!

|Even though I thought Mason bees and carpenter bees were the same and it isn't the right size for carpenter bees, I love it and am putting it up in hopes a family moves in.|

|I just got it for this year garden polination, hung it and am waiting for the bees to come. Made my own enclosure. It seems like good quality and correct size.|

|The quality of the Mason Bee Nest Kit is very good. The cardboard tubes are smoothly finished and fit snugly inside the housing. We've put our nest kit underneath the eaves of our garden shed, and now we're just waiting for the residents to arrive!|

|mason bee house is super!||3/4/2012|
|The mason bees love this house. They are such sweet little creatures, don't sting, and love to pollinate my early bloomers. I just put the house under the eaves of my shed and these native bees moved in the first year.|
