           The Blue Orchard Mason Bee, technically known as Osmia lignaria, is an excellent pollinator. Each one can do as much pollinating as 120 honey bees. This kit will help attract these beneficial bees to your garden. Since Mason Bees are solitary bees and do not make hives, they are always looking for a place to make a home. They look for a hole or tunnel that has been bored out by a beetle or other insect and go in and clean it out. When they find these tubes that are the perfect size and shape, and already cleaned out, they will move right it. Includes nest with 35 tubes and mounting bracket.

           Adding a Ladybug House to your garden will give the ladybugs a safe place to spend the night and protect them from predators, wind and rain. When they land on the upward slanted louvers, they will naturally crawl up and into the honeycomb material inside the house. This provides a similar shelter to what ladybugs naturally seek: secure places under loose bark, between leaves or under garden litter. Other beneficial insects may also use the Ladybug House. Green lacewings are also a voracious predator of aphids and will find the Ladybug House attractive. 

           The Ladybug House may be mounted almost anywhere in the garden, including on the side of a fence or on a tree trunk. For the ideal location to attract ladybugs, the house can be mounted near the ground (but not on it), and close to where they will find aphids or other insects to eat. Includes mounting screws.
