The PVMN Coordinating Committee will have the pre-ordered kits for the Mason Bee House, a chicken wire screen to keep birds out, glue, screws, tools and assistance.
If you would like to build a Mason Bee House, please use the registration form below to order and pay for your kit. We are limiting the kits to 10, so please order soon if you’d like to participate in this activity. The fee for the kits is $16.
The Mason Bee House looks like this:
The builder can then paint or stain the house later and be prepared for late winter/spring placement outdoors. Bee nesting materials such as the block shown are not included. The builder can select either reeds or a nesting block, sources for the nesting material will be given to the builders. The nesting material will not be needed until the bee house is set out in the spring. PVMN may have a source for wholesale pricing of the nesting materials.
Hope to see you at the 2018 PVMN Fall Gathering. Bring family and friends for a great time.
Registration is encouraged in order to help with the planning of the day.
