Ground Bee – April 19 2006

That’s no ant hole

Theses solitary ground(Miner/Digger) bees can be found here at Camp making these neat holes in the ground. The bees are fun to watch work.  Often times they are seen peeking out of their hole and scurrying back down as people approach.  While looking similar to ant hills these structures usually have bigger entrance holes than most ant holes.

Don’t worry bee is happy

These bees can be seen pollinating many of the spring wildflowers.  I’ve read that these solitary bees are not aggressive, which is good because they’re all over camp.
