A bee house to help out the pollinators

I have noticed a lot of honeybees around the yard and garden which makes me very happy since only a few months ago, the word was that they were in trouble and dying out. That still may be true, but these wild bees seem to be doing fine. While the locust trees were in bloom the Mason bees just were crazy for the pollen. They were all over the tree, their buzzing making the whole tree him.

If you want to help the bees who keep your vegetables and flowers pollinated, here is a Mason bee house. There are many different designs, but this one looks like a bird house and is inexpensive. Mason bees are prolific pollinators and this can help attract them to your garden. These bees generally nest in holes created by woodpeckers and beetles so this will keep them out of the outside walls of your house and give them their own dwelling.
