Backyard Pollinator products are unique – the nesting blocks contain live leafcutter bee larvae ready to hatch, fly and pollinate in the warm summer months.  Our Saskatchewan-made Solitary Bee Barns provide weather durability and create an attractive surround for the nesting blocks.  Hatch & Release cocoons are popular with nature enthusiasts who wish to increase their local bee population.

Leafcutter bees are gentle and non-aggressive solitary bees which stay close to their home. They are also known as SUPER POLLINATORS, carrying dry pollen on their hairy underside and leaving some of this pollen on every flower they visit.


Leafcutter bees are very small and will work in unison with other types of bees. A single female leafcutter bee may visit thousands of blossoms in a day.  If there are adequate flowers to forage on, this small bee will stay within 100-200 metres of their nesting habitat so the benefits of their pollination will be seen close at hand.
