• Author Dave Hunter is at the leading edge of bee and pollinator issues • Mason bees are part of the solution to honeybees’ decline • No other bee book addresses the topic with such depth and interest • Includes useful information about leafcutter bees too! The national media regularly features dire stories on honeybee colony collapse and its danger to our food supply. But there's another, unsung bee that has the potential to save the planet—the mason bee. Mason Bee Revolution explains how docile, hard-working, solitary mason bees (and their compatriots, the leafcutter bees) are even more productive pollinators than honeybees, and keeping them can be a fun, easy, backyard hobby for gardeners, conservationists, foodies, and families everywhere. Why these bees? Bee pollination is critical for about 80 percent of US agricultural crops, increasing crop value by an estimated $15 billion annually. Since 2006, nearly a third of all honeybee hives have been lost each year, due to parasites, pesticides, habitat loss, climate change, and a newer malady called Colony Collapse Disorder. While scientists search for answers to save the honeybee, Dave Hunter and his company, Crown Bees, are leading the effort to increase the population of other highly efficient pollinators: One mason bee can produce twelve pounds of cherries, via pollination, where it would take sixty honey bees to achieve the same. Mason Bee Revolution is an easy-to-follow guide to keeping both mason and leafcutter bees. It tells you how to set up, care for, and harvest your own bees and what types of plants and habitat encourage mason and leafcutter bees, as well as provides general information on other common pollinators and bee-related facts, projects, and personalities.

Reaumur (Rene Antoine Ferchault de Reaumur (1683-1757), inventor of the Reaumur thermometer and author of "Memoires pour servir a l'histoire naturelle des insectes."—Translator's Note.) devoted one of his papers to the story of the Chalicodoma of the Walls, whom he calls the Mason-bee. I propose to go on with the story, to complete it and especially to consider it from a point of view wholly neglected by that eminent observer. And, first of all, I am tempted to tell how I made this Bee's acquaintance.

The mason bee is a major global spring pollinator. The authors have successfully deployed over 250 Mason bee houses across Vancouver Island, British Columbia, and provide education to schools, gardeners, and the community. Mason bees are fun to keep and make a difference to pollination in gardens, farms and community spaces. The Incredible Mason Bee book teaches you about these bees, their management, and how to make your own mason bee house in your own garden to attract these delightful insects. Includes useful information about common issues and challenges with mason bee houses and reassurance as to the safety of keeping mason bees. The mason bee is more productive in pollinating your garden than honeybees. Keeping these bees is fun and educational for children and adults alike. Taking less than 6 hours per year to manage, mason bees are the ultimate backyard-friendly bee, essential in the pollination of early flowering fruit trees, vegetables, and flowers. Mason beekeeping is a hobby for all ages, it is safe, engaging, interesting, and instrumental in responsibly maintaining and sustaining the ecosystem. The book introduces you to the different types of houses, the benefits and challenges of each, and the pests that you may encounter as you build out your mason bee community. It is informative, supportive, and engaging for all ages.
