      Water-drinking solitary bees?

      I confess I have never seen solitary bees quenching their thirst on water.

      However, of course, females of Anthophora and other genera “collect” water to use for nest making.

      Do we know whether solitary bees drink actual water or may nectar provide all the water they need ?
      Any observations on the topic published in scientific journals?
      Thanks a lot
