As our population grows and our farmland area shrinks it is more than ever important to Grow more Food in our urban environment.

Improving food production in our urban environment requires higher pollination rates. By increasing pollination rates, growers can achieve larger harvests of tastier produce.

Increased pollination can be achieved through the use of Mason bees which are excellent pollinators.

You will be amazed at the results.

What makes these bees such excellent pollinators is how they work the blossom

They deliberately land directly on the pollen bearing stamen because their primary interest is the pollen they gather as food for the next generation.

Most home orchards and gardens can be well pollinated with as little as 50 Orchard mason bees. Each female can visit up to 2,000 blossoms a day. One acre of a commercial apple orchard can be pollinated with approximately 250 female Orchard mason bees.

Raising Mason bees as pollinators was sort of a grass roots thing but is now becoming more mainstream as companies are starting to use large numbers of Mason bees for commercial orchard pollination. Lately newspapers and magazines have been publishing more articles raising awareness. As the value of Mason bees as pollinators is being realized their popularity is rapidly on the rise.
