Instructions:
http://www.instructables.com/id/Mason-Bee-House/

Native mason bees can be housed to protect them from pests, diseases and predators. They are excellent early season pollinators for orchards and other early season fruit crops. Mason bees can do more work than non-native honey bees, even on a cloudy rainy day. Also, mason bees are solitary non-aggressive bees, which makes them ideal for folks with pets or children. The initial step for the care of mason bees is to build a nest block or mason bee house.

Fantastic ! I've been wanting to build something like this.

Ha! I didn't even know about ,mason bees until a year ago , turns out I've seen them in the gardens and they are far better pollinators than honey bees ( which are hardly seen anymore ).
