Where does it come from?
Mason bees are very common through out the United States. Smaller than honey bees, they are often blue or bluish-black in color. Mason bees get their name because when eggs are laid within the nest, the cells with the eggs are sealed up with a mud-like substance. Male mason bees do not have a stinger and females will usually only sting if they are trapped or squeezed. Overall, mason bees are docile and are ideal garden pollinators. Mason bees are not very social and do not live with a queen bee.
