Did you know that honey bees aren’t actually native to the United States?
However, thousands of species of solitary bees, including mason and leafcutter bees, call the U.S. home!
These bees are better pollinators for many of our native plants, yet due to a loss of habitat have seen a decline in population in recent  years.     

Want to provide a home for our native  pollinators? Check out our BeeBuilders solitary bee homes!

Don't want to wait for the bees to find you or want to provide a whole neighborhood for our pollinators?  Choose one of BeeBuilder kits, which include everything you need, including bees, to build a pollinator habitat! 

Solitary bees require no ongoing maintenance, and are extremely docile. BeeBuilder solitary homes are perfect for apartment dwellers, those allergic to honey bees, or those with restrictive HOA rules! Check out our install page for a video on important tips on installing your home!
