The one thing I like about social media is the giveaways. I don't like the "loop giveaways" where you have to like and follow every sponsor, but sometimes companies will run a contest where all you have to do is leave a comment. The ones where you have to tag a friend are tough for me to like, feeling the practice is one step away from chain letters, but I understand the value of lead generation. For the chance to win the right thing, I'll give up a friend's name. And that is how I came to own a DIY Mason Bee House Kit from Mason Bees For Sale.
Also included in the kit is a coupon code for 10% off bees. Don't tell them I told you it's MASONBHK17.
|The kit includes everything except glue. I ordered reeds because I didn't realize the kit includes nesting tubes.|
|Putting glue in the precision cut grooves.|
|Attaching the sides.|
|Attaching the floor. The back is the only part that you have to figure out the positioning for (no grooves for it) but it goes on last and placement is fairly intuitive. It sits inside the walls, making the whole construction sturdy.|
|The kit even includes rubber bands to secure the house while the glue sets.|
|DIY House packed with phragmite reeds.|
