Re: Pollinators - Bee aware
Good to be reminded of this NB.
Several years ago, there was a movement to try & encourage people to set up nest boxes for solitary bees like Mason Bees. At the time, the Oxford Bee Company marketed these, but they've now ceased trading.
However you can still get supplies from this company
I should warn that I haven't bought anything from them, but I did buy replacement cardboard tubes for our nest last year. Virtually every tube in my two mini hives have been used by Mason bees this year. I agree that a twin-pronged approach to encourage as many different types of bees can only be a good thing.
