Mason Bee Maintenance Workshop

October 28, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

With Tom Lahey

This informative class with Mason Bee expert, Tom Lahey will cover all you need to know to keep your mason bee cocoons healthy. Many people start out with great enthusiasm in the Spring, but in the Fall they are not quite sure what to do with their cocoons. If you have cocoons, bring them along and if you don’t, we will have plenty for you to practice with.  Tom will cover how to harvest the cocoons from various homes including wooden or plastic trays, cardboard, bamboo or paper tubes and drilled holes. With Tom’s guidance, you will learn how to overwinter cocoons to help with their survival for the Spring. Leave with the job done and confidence about taking care of your bees.
