Mason Bee House  This unique style for a Mason bee house is ideal for the solitary Mason and Leafcutter bee.  Super pollinators and non-aggessive, Mason bees are known to use mud or any other grit or stone materials to create their nests; often in naturally occurring/man-made cracks, crevices or small cavities.  An ideal position for a Mason bee house is approx 5" from the ground on either a fence or tree surrounded by plant-life and facing the morning sun. The bees will lay eggs in the bamboo and seal the tubes to protect their young.  #mason #bee #garden #wooden #rustic #reclaimed #upcycled #recycled #reclaimed  #leafcutter #flowers #insects #honey
πŸƒπŸπŸƒ This little Leafcutter Bee has been caught on camera... (1) gathering food source...

Leafcutter bees have used my redbud leaves for nesting. Apparently one leafcutter bee can pollinate as much as 20 honeybees, so I’m happy to have them in my garden. They help grow my cucumbers and double as tree barbers. ☺️ . . . #texasgardening #redbud #leafcutter #pollinators #beneficialinsects #bees #gardenlife
Returning back to Earth 🐝 My amazing husband @deuros has been looking after our family and a variety of critters whilst I was in London. He’s been releasing the bees as they’ve been hatching and keeping a record and me updated of what’s been going on. My females are hatching at quite a rate now and upon releasing one just now, after flying around my face (hello little one) and landing on my shoulder I walked her to the maple tree. As she landed on a leaf a little male flew out of nowhere, knocked her off and started his romantic advances in the grass.  So, here’s what they look like when making babees πŸ€—  Not all together sure my female felt overwhelmed with his wooing and I doubt he’ll call her in the morning πŸ˜‚  #bee #bees #solitarybee #solitarybeekeeping #solitarybeekeeping #solitarybeeweek #emsbeeandbee #leafcutter #leafcutterbee #makingbabees #pollinators #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #naturalist #beekeeping #wildlife #wildlifephotography #lovebees #savethebees #weneedbees #30dayswild #everylifematters #foe #wildlifetrust #bbcspringwatch #springwatch #rspb_love_nature #lovenature #🐝 #imjustalovemachine

Leafcutters just about finished tidying up the tubes for their next generation. Many of which will emerge yet this summer and start the process all over again. β€οΈπŸƒβœ‚οΈπŸ! #nativebees #leafcutter #bees #beekeeper #beesponsible #dontkillmybuzz @beesponsible
Success! I noticed a flash of green in the corner of my eye. It was a #leafcutter #bee making a nest! These tiny, #native #pollinators cut out pieces of leaves which they roll up into tubes to create leaf-lined nests. They are #solitary nesting and non-aggressive. 🐝 #solitarybee #leafcutterbee #appalachiantrail #trailmagic
A freshly emerged #leafcutter #bee from a #bughotel in my garden. After his little wash and brush up he made his first successful #forage ☺🐝
Noticed honey bees in our garden carrying pieces of cut leaf. Something they do apparently!  #bee #honeybee #insects #ukinsects #britishinsects #wildlife #nature #naturelovers #leafcutter

Check out our leafcutter colony! ————— These girls are Atta sexdens from Peru. They won’t eat these leaves, but they use them as substrate for their fungus garden (swipe right πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰), just like the rest of the fungus-growing ants. ————— #ant #ants #science #insect #insects #entomology #biology #leafcutter #scienceporn #scienceisawesome
I think I’ve found the perfect home for the backyard pollinator now, on the opposite wall of the chicken coop as the wall I had it on copper it severely for wind and rain. Who knew (everyone except me). I think my bees aren’t due to hatch for another week. I hope I didn’t break them  #saskatchewan #leafcutter #bees #backyardpollinator
Busy morning 🐝  17 male leaf cutter bees have hatched this morning. 1 female (she’s going to be popular), 2 males and 1 female cuckoo bees and a couple of chalcid wasps.  All the leaf cutters have successfully flown and exploring the two leaf cutter areas I’ve shown them and released them near. To the point where one earlier male has popped his head out of a bee hotel making it known that he’s taken up residence in that hotel and it’s his!  The female was quite amused by the boys squabbling so I’ve been doing relays backwards and forwards since 7:15am when the first boys were emerging to get them out without a bust up. The female looks like she wishes she had popcorn to watch the entertainment!  I have one more male making his way out but a busy start to the day πŸ˜„ The cuckoo bees have been released further up the garden where I have naff all solitary bees nesting this year due to certain flowers blooming late. I have lots of what I think are mason bees (they’re not red coloured like my Spring red-Mason bees) but they live 3 doors down and are loving the buttercups.  Phew!

This is possibly a leaf cutter Bee on our yellow Iris. It turns upside down to collect the nectar! #bee #leafcutter #lenscoat #britishwildlife #garden #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeonearth #insect #bugs #iphone #myadventure #macrophotography #phonehug
This little #leafcutter #bee #megachile #species was literally dripping in #pollen #feasting on my #valerian plant.
Hello little world These Costa Rican ants had occupied the stone path between our sleeping place and the kitchen for their colony's transportation highway. Humans were allowed to walk over to pursue their daily business - but as soon as I would move any closer than this with my camera, I would be painfully attacked from dozens of fierce ant warriors. They sure do like their privacy! #leafcutterants #antsy #leafcutter #anthighway #antroad #teamwork #naturewins #caribbeanlife #costarica #rainforestlife #naturelife #wanderparadise #discovernature #awesomenature #naturepics #naturepictures #naturephotography
Next to humans, leafcutter ants form the largest and most complex animal societies on Earth. This little animals are farmers too, they cultivate fungus by feeding them with pieces of leaves, grasses and flowers. A lot to learn from our little friends at proyecto cocuyo! #ants #leafcutter #biodiversity #natureforall ¤ ¤ ¤Junto a los humanos, las hormigas cortadoras de hojas forman las sociedades animales más grandes y complejas de la Tierra. También son agricultoras, cultivan hongos alimentándolos con pedazos de hojas, hierbas y flores. Mucho que aprender de nuestros pequeños amigos de proyecto cocuyo :) #hormigas #biodiversidad #proyectococuyo
πŸƒπŸπŸƒ Leafcutter bees are very busy... I wondered what they were cutting their nesting materials from... the second photo shows you... what... πŸƒπŸŒΉπŸƒ 😲 #goodthingtheyaresostinkincute . . . . #bee #bees #leafcutter #leafcutterbee #pollinators #rose #rosebush #beehotel #beehouse #solitarybees #insects #insectphotography #nature #ozarks #missouri #midwestmo #springfieldmo #springfieldmissouri #417land #417nature #sgf #sgfmo
