Bees and Bee Supplies
Guard Tubes & Inserts
Mason bees prefer a medium with insulating qualities that wick moisture away from the cocoon, keeping them dry and mold-free. The tubes also help protect cocoons from predatory wasps and mites. We have a wide variety of tube systems to choose from, all measuring 6 inches in length; the ideal depth for mason bees to lay their eggs and perfect for use with our Mason Bee Homes.
These innovative cardboard guard tubes are made from 100% recyclable paper and feature a paper-closed end with a view hole that assists in sorting empty inserts. Inside diameter is 5/16 inch. The inserts are made from glassine and are 6 1/8 inches long. This extra length assists in pulling the inserts from the guard tubes at harvesting time. Contains 40 guard tubes with inserts.
