Q

Do you have any information on how to attract Mason Bees?

I live in the Northwest where my apple trees usually blossom before honey bees are out (due to colder spring weather). I have heard that Mason Bees are out earlier and are excellent pollinators. I have also heard that is possible to attract them by making places for them to nest.

See this publication on Orchard Mason Bees from Washington State University Cooperative Extension: http://gardening.wsu.edu/library/inse006/inse006.htm There is a section on how to collect orchard mason bees.
