Orchard Mason Bee

The orchard mason bee, Osmia lignaria, is an effective early pollinator native to the Western US and
Canada. It emerges in the spring, before honeybees. As a pollinator, it is far more efficient than the
honeybee by transferring more pollen and visiting more types and numbers of flowers.
