Natural Reeds are visually attractive and the slight size variation gives a female bee a nesting hole that is just right for her. Mix with other nesting materials to attract more nesting bees!
Nesting hole sizes are about 8mm, approximately 6″ long, and fit into all Crown Bees bee houses. Each reed has a natural node to seal the back end, preventing parasitic wasp access.
Spring mason bees prefer 8mm sized nesting holes. Spring Natural Reeds come in slightly varied sizes in the range of 7-10mm.
Perfect for our spring mason bees, wild hole-nesting bees, and solitary beneficial wasps!
