Talking Orchard Mason Bees
A very educative Thursday morning meeting at the Steilacoom Kiwanis Club. Rick Mercier made a presentation on North America’s Orchard Mason bees. Interesting to learn more about nature’s friendly pollinator!
Rick Mercier, our local Orchard Mason Bee daddy, shared fascinating value of Mason bees over honey bees when it comes to pollination. They are much more efficient, so the orchards will yield significantly more fruit. Who knew? Thankfully he supports the Orr house orchard, keeping our history growing. He is a fountain of bee knowledge. One nice thing to know is the Mason bee will not sting so great to have around the kids when pollinating your fruit trees. If you want more fruit, talk to Rick to find out how to get your own Mason bees. www.itsallthebuzz.com
