Default Mason bee

Just out of curiosity, we have one in the garden.

The female creates an egg chamber and deposits her eggs in sealed cells in series. The males apparently hatch first and break out of the chamber forging the way for the females later. So the males must be the cells closet to the entrance, with the females being in the cells at the rear. Is the sex of the young determined by the temperature? i.e. the nearest cells to the front getting the most amount of heat? Or is there another process at work?

Any information would be greatly received

You'd be better off contacting The British Beekeepers Association. Follow the link.
