The Mighty Mason Bee

The Mighty Mason Bee
 

There are more than 450 species of native bees that are vital for crop pollination and our native pollinator is the Mason Bee.

“Orchard Mason Bees (OMB) are distributed throughout Southwestern Canada and Western United States and along with many other native species play an integral role in the pollination of plants in North America. A pollination crisis is looming in North America and many other parts of the globe due to loss of natural habitat, altering the plant-pollinator interactions that are critical for crop production.”
