Not sure when to have your bees delivered?  Consider two things.  One:  these bees need daytime temps in the 70's or warmer.  Two:  what are you trying to pollinate?  These bees are a generalists and will pollinate a variety of flowers.  If you are seeking to pollinate flowering summer vegetables in your garden, consider when these plants will actually flower.

Leafcutter bees fly best when temperatures are in the high 70's or warmer!
