Welcome to another winter season of mason bee supplies! Our sale/shipping season begins on December 7th 2015, and runs until our supplies run out! We have had high sales in previous years and run out of merchandise, so please consider ordering early in December or January to beat the rush.
Remember: We do not accept pre-orders, nor is there a waiting list before the start of the shipping season.
California residents MUST provide us with a copy of your mason bee permit BEFORE we can process your order. You must file form 66-026 with the California Department of Agriculture. Applications are available on-line at: http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/plant/permitsandregs.html
Send your permit to: Home Orchard Society PO Box 607 Oregon City, OR 97045
Or scan and email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Again this shipping season we will be limiting the number of tubes of bees for sale to any one customer to 25 tubes to ensure that the most people can get a population of bees going. If you are used to buying lots of bees to replace normal honeybee pollination on a commercial farm, PLEASE consider buying a larger number of empty tubes from us, and start building your own population rather than buying new bees each year.
We won’t be offering PVC houses for local sale again this year. Please check out the following forms for general mason bee care and DIY instructions for how to build the PVC houses yourself!
PLEASE NOTE: All shipping will be USPS priority mail unless otherwise arranged via email prior to your order.
Canadian orders and orders over $100 MUST email ahead for a custom shipping price: email@example.com
As the demand for mason bees rises, we are always looking for new bee suppliers in the Portland, OR metro area. Are you a mason bee enthusiast with bee houses that are overflowing with bees? Please contact us!
Have a great holiday season and happy pruning!
