  • Peter, thanks for passing along the great picture. Passiflora incarnata is such a magnet for carpenter bees! But, don’t make the mistake of thinking it will stay where you plant it!

  • Better to have $2 million for real bee studies. We’re not even close to understanding how they all work, and like typical humans, we want to “improve” or at least imitate already.

  • Sam, though oft-discussed, I think the emergent decision-making of honeybee swarms should also be of interest to engineers, as well as their associated chronological and spatial abilities (recent review which includes all social insects ). With regard to other bees, they probably have comparable amazing abilities -- but are just not as studied. dw From: beemonitoring@^$1...
