First Native Bee for the 2019 Season!

February 13, 2019

It’s official – our first 2019 native bee species to be seen in the garden is the Black-tailed Bumble Bee! Surely a queen, this bee was busy collecting pollen to start her new colony. With all of the rain we’ve having, I hope she found a cozy, dry place to raise her brood – maybe one of our Bumble Bee Boxes!
