Hands-On Mason Bee Fall Care Seminar
with Ray Strelecki

Two sessions Saturday,
September 15, 2018
1pm to 2:30pm;
and again from 3 to 4:30pm


Our gentle native Mason Bees have a much better survival and reproduction rate if given a little TLC in the fall. 

Ray will bring in actual bee houses with live (dormant) Mason Bees and first demonstrate, then let you practice, basic fall Mason bee care.

Learn how to remove cocoons from the bee houses without harming the dormant bees, how to clean the blocks, and how to clean the cocoons.

Ray will also talk about how to deal with insect invaders (such as hornets) that sometimes like to try overwintering in bee houses.

Free, but class size is limited to allow everyone opportunity to practice.
