Got a call yesterday about an odd bee coming into the chimney and the accompanying picture of it peppered with holes in the mortar.
We had an old Pyracantha on the house wall that stan and I fought hard to remove. it left lots of screw holes in the wall where supporting wires had been in place. Even while we were doing it mason bees were in there like shot
This company sort of farms red mason bees but you have to join their programme to benefit from the cocoons they provide.
If you join now you won't benefit until next year.
