Mom & Bees

I got my mom started on raising mason bees this year. I sent her a box a couple of months ago (eastern mason bees), but she didn’t think they were hatching and put in a new order last Monday. Since it’s towards the end of the season, Crown Bees sent her an extra 60 cocoons. When they arrived, some had already hatched. Mom was like a little kid full of glee when she called me! She was having a laugh about what the mail carrier thought when hearing their buzz (she said it sounded like somebody’s cell phone was on vibrate). I don’t think she’s getting much work done today…she’s having too much fun watching them hatch and mate!
