Bumblebee, Honey Bees, Solitary Bee
★ Bee Hotels for Solitary Bees You may be wondering what bees need a hotel for, when they make their own hives. The truth is that many species of bees are solitary – they do not live in hives but instead construct their own nest. The main reason for this is because in these species every female is fertile and this would not make for comfortable communal living in a hive.

Bumble Bee ~ I've had them drill holes/nests into the railing of my wood deck. I noticed a small pile of wood sawdust on the deck floor beneath a hanging plaque. I took down the plaque and there was a hole in the wood. I watched it and there was a bumble bee that kept flying in and out of the hole. It shocked me that they could do that!

Bee Hotels: You may wonder why bees need a hotel when they have hives. The truth is many species are solitary and construct their own nests. In these species every female is fertile and hive living does not work. Mason bees, which are native to North America, do not sting and pollinate far more plants than imported honey bees do, so providing habitat for them is really important to the survival of their species and our continued food supply.

honeybee, One of God's little miracles! First of all for the Honey! ummmmm! Second of all, Science shows that the way the bee is made, with a big fat body and little teeny tiny wings, that those wings can not hold that body up, never mind fly! But no one told the bee, it shouldn't be able to fly...so it goes on about its business and flies all over the place for miles and miles and never gives up. We should have the faith of a bumble bee!

Bee - bees really seem to like purple! (That's one reason why the Armstrong & Blackbury Pollen Bee nest has a purple and white patterned body.)
In 1911, a bee culturist estimated that a quart of honey represented bees flying over 48,000 miles to gather the pollen required for the nectar to produce the honey.

When I was little my mother told me that if a bumble bee is in your home it will let you cup your hands around it and set it free...well I tried that with one hanging around some flowers in the yard like this one here and guess what happened. :)
Lavender Bee One of every three bites of food you eat depends on the honey bee. They pollinate at least 130 different crops in the US alone, including fruits, vegetables and tree nuts.
Carpenter Bee. I wonder if this is what is hanging out in my kids back yard. They had a red stripe on them though so I still think they are bumble bees. Incredible creatures.

bumble bee on dandelion. A dandelion-dotted lawn may be good for you. Dandelions are one of the first links in that magical chain of events bringing dinner to our tables. The flower is one of the first spring foods for bees, and if they survive the winter, they look to dandelions and other wildflowers for nutrition — so they can begin their work of pollinating our fruits and vegetables.
I love seeing bumblebees in the garden, and always take the time to say hello
