What Houzz contributors are saying:

6. Replenish as NeededGonzalez suggests swapping out the organic materials every season, or sooner, as they get used up. It’s also important to sanitize or clean mason bee holes every couple of years to minimize the buildup of mites and ward off other diseases and pests. Hang a clean bee box next to the existing box and remove the used habitat after the mason bees have emerged for the season. The used habitat can be cleaned with a mild bleach solution. Store it, then reuse it when it’s time to clean out the other bee habitat.
