The Red Mason Bee (Osmia rufa L. syn. O. bicornis), endemic in Middle Europe is a solitary bee
pollinating a wide
spectrum of miscellaneous plant species by foraging and provisioning.
The pollination of flowering plants and the resulting seed set is the prerequisite of seed
and fruit yield and plays an important role in fruit-growing, in plant breeding programmes, in preservation of
plant genetic resources as well as in plant species conservation.
In the reproduction of Mason Bees our company has collected 10 years of experiences.
New!! in our nesting material assortment is the Professional multi-use nesting block.
