This mason bee house is made here in our wood shop out of pine. This house has a sloped roof, generous eave and side walls to increase weather protection. We build these mason bee houses using offcuts of wood when making beehives, so there will be some knots. Painting your mason bee house with exterior latex paint, or tung oil, will help preserve it. The wood is glued and we use deep 1.5" staples.
Features a key-hole on the back for hanging with a nail.
