Southeastern Blueberry Bees

Montalba, TX(Zone 8a)

I am a grower of blueberries in East Texas who is interested in attracting the Southeastern Blueberry Bee to help me pollinate my blueberries. I already have a number of wild bumblebee nests that are doing just fine, but I have heard that the Habropoda laboriosa/Southeastern Blueberry Bee is a much better pollinator and I would like to encourage them to set up house in my blueberry fields. Any info on companion plants to attract them, housing that I can build to make their stay more appealing, and to help the hives grow would be appreciated.
