Houses outside

Some other houses I have placed outside.  Both are facing South to South-East.  
It is important for mason bee houses to get early morning sun/warmth.  But it is also important to protect the houses from rain and wind.  Unfortunately in the Seattle area many weather patterns come from the South.  A good overhang should protect from rain.

  1. I live in NE Michigan, on the shoreline of Lake Huron. I've been thinking of trying to attract and harvest these bees. Thanks for clear pictures and directions!
