Did you know there are blue-green bees in Texas that don’t sting? They’re called Mason Bees! Their name refers to the fact that they typically use mud or other "masonry" materials for making nests, and they help pollinate fruit trees like apples, plums, peaches, and pears, and flowers. For this DIY, we’re making a Bee Hotel for our local pollinator friends. Bee Hotels create a safe space for Mason Bees to lay their eggs, helping pollination for seasons to come. This DIY is a great way to explore animal habitats and socio-environmental systems with your family!
