Hey Brother Dave,

You may want to try the main posting forum and be a little more specific. Orchard bees? Winter care? feeding, medicating, checking? I'm still wet behind the ears but there's plenty that can and will help over on the main forum.

and welcome

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

You might like to look at these links for maintenance of Orchard Mason bees:

Monthly instructions specific to "The Straw-Insert System" from Washington State University http://county.wsu.edu/king/gardening/mg/factsheets/Fact%20Sheets/Orchard%20Mason%20Bees.pdf

Blog diary entry of winter care of mason bees by Russel Nursery http://russellnursery.wordpress.com/2011/02/11/winter-care-of-mason-bees/

I hope that helps!
