Did you know that there are over 4,000 species of bee in North America? Of these, about 500 live in Oregon, each species an important piece of the pollination pie in our local ecosystems. Among the most charismatic of North America’s natives, mason bees are gentle, solitary, and amazing early spring pollinators.
Promoting healthy mason bee populations is one of the best ways to improve fruit tree and spring garden yields. Appropriate for small backyards to large orchards, habitats are easy to set up, and the bees are fun and easy to care for.
In this virtual course, Bee & Bloom experts will discuss the mason bee life cycle, what makes a good or bad habitat, how to set up your own habitat, how to care for your bees, and common pests and disease ID and prevention.
All lectures will be recorded and available to participants for 48hrs following the class.
