Mason Bee Houses and Bee Traps Image
Mason bee is a common name for species of bees in the genus Osmia. They are named from their habit of making compartments of mud in their nests, which are made in hollow reeds or holes in wood made by wood-boring insects. Unlike honey bees or bumblebees, Osmia are solitary; every female is fertile and makes her own nest, and there are no worker bees for these species. Solitary bees produce neither honey nor beeswax. Females then visit flowers to gather pollen and nectar, and many trips are needed to complete a pollen/nectar provision mass. Once a provision mass is complete, the bee backs into the hole and lays an egg on top of the mass. Then she creates a partition of "mud", which doubles as the back of the next cell. The process continues until she has filled the cavity. Female-destined eggs are laid in the back of the nest, and male eggs towards the front.
Once a bee has finished with a nest, she plugs the entrance to the tube, and then may seek out another nest location.

Ladybug House Placement

Ladybug Houses could more aptly be called Ladybug shelters. Ladybug houses will not necessarily attract ladybugs; your garden does that. The house only provides shelter from elements and predators for the ladybugs.

The house should go in or near your vegetable or flower garden. It can be mounted using a short stake attached to the back, or, simply sit on a rock or concrete block just a foot or so off the ground or up to about 3 feet at most. A tiny pool of water (as deep as half of a ladybug's height) with some leaves and twigs in or near the house will help attract them. You can also buy chemical attractant, or just buy the ladybugs themselves.
 
 
Bat Houses Image
Installing a backyard bat house is a great way to demonstrate your commitment to nature. And your bat-tenants will pay you back with some wonderful benefits.

Bats are essential for maintaining healthy ecosystems. Most bats eat huge amounts of insects, including farm pests and many of the nasty bugs that harass outdoor gatherings. You'll also enjoy learning more about bats as you watch them come and go from the home you provided.

And homes are often in short supply for bats. Their populations are declining around the world, often because of disappearing habitat.
