Yes Mag shows you how easy it is to make a bee house with this tutorial and accompanying video.
From the site:

Mason bees are a common bee you will see flying around your home in spring and summer. They are native, non-social bees. They neither sting nor make honey.
The mason bee is an important pollinator. This blue-black metallic bee nests in hollow stems, woodpecker holes, and insect holes found in trees or wood.

    What a brilliant idea. I watch these insects turn my office/warehouse into swiss cheese every spring. It is hard for me to hate them as I can see they have little powdered Cheetos legs covered in pollen. I don’t like poisons and this is such a great alternate option. Good show.
