Question:

What time of year do bees mate?

Answer:

Mason bees mate immediately after hatching in the spring. The female then searches for an appropriate hole or crevice to build her nest. After preparing a brood chamber, she gathers pollen and nectar until she has enough to feed a larva to adulthood.
