Explore Native Garden, Australian Native, and more!

My habitat for the Australian Native Bee. Logs with holes drilled in them, sticks, twigs, hollow bamboo, grasses. It looks good in the garden.

Blue-banded bees (Amegilla cingulata) are native to Australia, but also occur naturally in Papua New Guinea, East Timor, Indonesia and Malaysia. Unlike other bee species, blue-banded bees are solitary insects. They typically build nests in sandstone, mud or the mortar-gaps in the brickwork of houses.

The Moosey Native Garden - NZ natives, but they look a lot like the Aust ones... goes to show your garden can be soft and still native!
