Late Year Activity

As of  May 15, 2018, all but 2 of the Mason Bees have emerged (18 of the 20 purchased).

There are about 30 tubes that have been capped, with several others that may be 1/2  filled .

There has not seen any Flying Bees for several days.


The top half of the Hotel was quickly created with a 5/16 router bit.

Later, the bottom black section was 3D Printed with PLA.  One PLA tube is capped, others may have short nests.

Next year, both wood and PLA nests will be provided at the same time.
