Our nesting tubes are cut from the stems of naturally grown Phragmite reeds. The diameter of each reed varies in size from approximately 5/16 inch to 7/16 inch. Each reed is hand selected to and cut to a length between 6″-6.5″. Adding variety to the length and size of nesting material will give mason bees variety to choose from. All bees are not the same size and we have found better propagation when we use a variety of tube sizes.

For 2 years I purchased Phragmite Reeds from Mountain West, but decided to try another supplier last year. I must admit the reeds from the other supplier did not stand up to the superior quality of the ones that I purchased from Mountain West.
