Bee Education and Information


What types of bees are nesting in your bee house? A simple way to promote conservation and future management of beneficial bee populations is through the use of observation. Female bees of these species will fill a tube or chamber with material and then seal the end. Learn what bees are nesting by noting what colour the bees are and what material is used to partition the cells:

  • Mason Bees (metallic, solid black, and other colours) have a cell partition material of mud and chewed plant material.
  • Resin Bees (striped) have a cell partition material of plant resins, sand, and pebbles.
  • Leafcutter Bees (striped) have a cell partition material of cut or chewed leaf sections.
  • Carder Bees (black and yellow, or black and white) have a cell partition material of compacted fibres, hair, resin, and sand.
  • Carpenter Bees (various colours) have a cell partition material of compacted sawdust.
  • Masked Bees (various colours) have a cell partition material of a plastic-like membrane.


  • Site in a sunny position facing between south to southeast to catch some morning sun, which bees love.
  • Mount between ground level and 5-feet high. Can be set on the ground, in trees, or on a surface.
  • TIPS: Protect full bee tubes with mesh to prevent predation by woodpeckers. Protect and shield from wind. Clean in the late autumn or winter after bee activity has ceased.
