This book does a nice job of explaining how to clean and maintain mason bee houses, what various pests and diseases to watch out for, what to make nests out of, what the life cycles and habits of the different bees are, and it has links to lots of resources.
I really like how the book is organized and laid out. It is easy to navigate, and nice to look at. The graphics and pictures aid the book, rather than detract.
All and all, this book is fantastic, especially for the price! If you want to learn about mason and leaf cuter bees, this is a really good way!
