John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com/ shares with you his favorite pollinator bees in his garden: leafcutter bees. He will review 4 different solitary bee homes and show you how you can make your own using paper straws and a plastic water bottle.
In this episode, you will get an update on the leafcutter bees that John got in May 2020, which are docile solitary bees, who can pollinate crops up to 15x better than Honey Bees in your garden, so you have maximum pollination of all your fruiting crops.
You will learn more about John’s experiences with the leafcutter bees and different leafcutter bee homes from Midas Bees, Costco, and the World Wildlife Interactive Solitary Beehive.
You will learn how John figured out by using paper straws he could expand his leaf cutter home to give him more nesting sites.
Finally, John will show you how you can build your own leafcutter bee home using a water bottle and plastic straws. Please note: please paint the bottle black as mason bees do not like to nest where it is too bright.
After watching this episode, you will learn about leafcutter bees and why these bees are John’s favorite bees for pollination in his garden, as well as the best bee homes you can buy and even how to make your own cheap DIY Bee home.
