Mason bee nests and cocoons need management at this time of year to give them a great start in the spring. We’ll open some nests up to look inside for pests and diseases, and learn what the best practices are to reduce the impacts of pathogens. Other topics covered will be:
Natural history of the mason bee
Bee biology and behaviour
Yearly Management tasks to keep your bees healthy
Siting your mason bee nest
Gardening and plant selection for the mason bee
Nest and cocoon cleaning
Storage over the winter
Saturday, 11:30 am to 1:30 pm, November 22, 2014
