    Hi,
    Who can I contact to find out more about my mason bees and their houses? I wasn’ t able to get to the session the other Saturday. I would like to know if my bees are alive and do I need to clean out the house?

    Cheers
    Sharon

      Hi Sharon,

      If you’re in the tri cities I’d highly recommend giving Amsterdam greenhouses a call. I took a bee class there last year, and they were very informative and helpful in teaching us how to properly clean the bee houses. They also encouraged people to bring in their houses if they needed assistance. This link below is the article on our experience. http://www.thedandelionwrangler.ca/2011/01/how-to-give-a-bee-a-bath.html Their phone number is 604-465-6614. You can also purchase new cocoon with them if needed. Good luck in your en devours!

    Hi Sharon,

    I’m sorry to hear you missed our event, ‘Release the Bees’ at the Inspiration Garden on Saturday. It was a great day despite the wet weather in the afternoon! I just wanted to add that in addition to Amsterdam Greenhouses, I know that our presenter, Pasquale would be more than happy to talk to you more about Mason Bees and how to clean them. If you’d like his contact info, please feel free to email us at garden@coquitlam.ca. Cheers!
