    Purple Bee Suit? Was that our friend from New York?

    I've got some boxes I made several years ago, and put one up here on the farm. Something filled the holes, but I'm not sure it was Mason Bees. But, as long as the critters pollinate, I guess I'm OK with it.

    have to open them up, shake out the mites that attack the larva, move the bee larva to an envelope or something and refrigerate a couple of months before hanging outside. I can't do anything til I finish taxes
