Mason Bee Maintenance

October 20, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Sunday, October 20 – 1:00pm – 3:00pm
Instructor: Tom Leahy

This informative class with Mason Bee expert, Tom Leahy. Tom 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 the cocoons. If you have cocoons, bring them along and get the job done with Tom’s guidance. If you don’t have your own cocoons, don’t worry, 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. After that the group will clean the cocoons and homes. Tom will also cover 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. Time permitting, Tom will cover additional care topics and participant questions.
