Masonry Bees that are so integral to our ecosystem. Unlike honeybees or bumble bees, the Masonry Bee is a solitary bee. It has no queen or worker bees. They don’t produce honey or beeswax. Other than mating, their soul purpose is to pollinate.
Coming in for a landing….Bees are a symbol of fertility as they spread their joy between flowers so that we can continue to appreciate all that we take soo much for granted. Please plant flowers to encourage, birds, bees and butterflies.
We plan to move our hives to another location that gets more sun and to plant mint around our beehives. Wax moths do not like mint at all. There are also a few tips on how to prevent wax moth infestation.
