Mason Bee Mud BoxMason Bee Mud Box: The mason bee protects each nesting chamber with clayey mud. Without a source of moist clayey mud nearby, mason bees will fly away! It can be a struggle to maintain the correct moisture content of the clay, the Mason Bee Mud Box solves this challenge with capillary action! Water stored below the mud takes an elevator ride up the black cloth, runs horizontally under the clay allowing the clay to wick up the right amount of moisture. Depending on weather conditions, the water level in the storage bin may last one to two weeks before refilling is required. Includes Mason Bee Mud Mix! To use; simply open the top of the bag of Mason Bee Mud Mix and add water, kneading the mixture within the bag until it has the consistency of dough. Roll the mud into a 1" thick log. Place Mud Box within an 8m (25’) radius of your mason bee house, in an easily seen area with partial shade.
