When do you put it out? It is October now we are cleaning our garden out and preparing it for winter. I see that you had it out in February, so the first of the year? Or is right now okay? Thanks!!! Love your post!!

In Florida, Texas and the Southern part of the United States you have a higher population of Africanized Bees. These bees are more defensive and are more productive in the hot and humid climates, unlike the European families of Honey Bee that populate California through the Midwest into the the North East region of America.

Africanized Bees are more defensive, but many countries, have their honey crops from these bees.

Honey bees do not sting unless being trapped or threatened while away from the hive…

So if you’re getting stung by bees you’re either… #1 messing around with their hive in some way #2 have one trapped in a piece of clothing or your hair #3 harassing the bee my attempting to grab, trap or harm her.

Bees die through disembowelment when they sting you. Their venom sac and entrails are attached to the stinger as it remains in your body and they fly off. So for a bee to actually give up their life they have to feel like they (or their hive) are in mortal danger.

When I first saw the picture of your Mason Bee House, I assumed it was made of wine corks. I’m looking into buying one myself, that is extremely cheap. Thanks for sharing this! (…and I loved the honey badger reference, ha!)

good luck! i hope you get a lot of tenants soon.
