Native bees and gardeners
I am building a talk to give to gardeners and the public about making
gardens and landscapes more native bee friendly. As we know most people
dont know much about bees, especially native ones so I need some
pictures on the basics.
If anyone has a talk or pictures of the bee life cycle from egg to adult
could you please email it to me. There are plenty of images of adults,
honeybees, nest entrances, but few of the inside of native bee nests or
larvae or maybe even cuckoo bee larvae or split/plexiglass nests. I
would like to try to educate people that the honey bee lifestyle is only
one way of being a bee.
Any help is greatly appreciated,
