Osmia Binderboard®  Our new line of Binderboard are now available!  They have 8 holes per row instead of 7, and they are held together with a strap rather than bolts.  Tighten strap with a screwdriver. 

 (5/16" diameter, 6" deep tunnels, 7 tunnels per laminate.  Boards should all be protected from rain with a roof, and not left outside uncovered or where standing water during the winter could damage them.
We are now using a strap for extra pressure on all sizes of Osmia Binderboard
® except our smallest sampler (still available with bolts). Both designs prevent warping of the wood if the boards get wet.  Read a cherry grower's experience with Binderboard®.

Books about Osmia  

Bosch, J. and W. Kemp. 2001. How to Manage the Blue Orchard Bee, Sustainable Ag. Network Handbook series, Book 5. 
This book has excellent color photos, lots of details, and especially good sections on parasites and predators, and on incubation and emergence.  Excellent if you know these bees; a bit technical for a beginner.
Now available free in PDF format at the SARE website:  http://www.sare.org/publications/bob.htm

Dogterom, M.  2002, revised 2009.  Pollination with Mason Bees.  BEEDIVERSE BOOKS

Black and white drawings, all of the basics of Osmia management plus information on other kinds of bees.  If you are just discovering orchard bees, this is a great book to start with.  Also contains a discussion of loose cocoon management, particularly useful for controlling hairy-fingered mites (they don't affect honeybees).
