Hands On Mason Bee Fall Care Seminar with Ray Strelecki

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. 

Please pre-register in the store, by calling 206-546-4851, or by emailing sky@skynursery.com.
