I have been trying to find an answer to our question on the Internet but no luck so hoping someone here might know. We have two honey bee hives and we want to also encourage Mason bees on our property since we have a fruit orchard. But the question we have is: Will the Mason bees compete too much with the Honey bees for pollen? We know that Mason bees visit approximately 1000 flowers a day to the honey bee's 400 a day. We obviously don't want to hinder the honey bees. Any opinions or answers would be appreciated.
