Happy #WorldBeeDay! Bees are fascinating creatures. They’ve got an incredible social structure within their hives, they play important roles in the pollination of many food plants we like. But did you know that the thousands of native bee species living mostly below our collective radar are split into categories such as digger bees, carpenter bees, mason bees, sweat bees, bumblebees, and cuckoo bees? The majority of those species don’t live in hives where workers cater to the needs of the queen and raise her babies for her. Instead, most native bees are reared in small nests built and tended by single mothers. Those female bees lay eggs, supply them with food, and protect them from enemies – all by themselves. The incredible variety among native bees, alone, can catch the public’s attention, especially when accompanied by photos showing the broad range of size, color, and shape among those bees. With 4,000 bee species in North America alone, along with countless other species of pollinators, it’s not like we’re short on material. 🐝 Words by: Chris Helzer Link in bio for more buzz on pollinators! #worldbeeday #bees #nativebees #honeybees #pollinators #nature #variety #worldbeeday2020 #biodiversity #beespecies 📸: @awlancaster
