Rent Mason Bees supplies pollination kits which contain safe, local bees to provide a sustainable and economical solution for gardeners, fruit growers and farmers. When your pollination needs have been met at the end of the season, you don't need to hassle with the care, cleaning and storage of the bees. You simply return the kit to them and they do the work. Through renting bees, your spring and summer crops are pollinated, you help boost native bee populations, and you directly support the production of food that will end up in our grocery stores.
Zenith Holland is now an established pick up and drop off location making renting bees convenient and easy. These bees are very docile, so your children and pets will be safe around these insects. They provide rentals of both a spring pollinator, the blue orchard mason bee, and a summer pollinator, the leafcutter bee.
