The beasts are down! 😈 This morning we took down the remaining 6 field cages (we had 13 total). Taking down 6 doesn’t seem like a lot, especially for 4 people, but these cages are 20ft x 20ft x 8ft. As a 5’ 3” 120 pound grad student, I was definitely the weak link. I do think taking them down is much easier than putting them up though. There was also the 72 sandbags we had to move that are used to hold the screen down. Next step, getting them out of the field.

shawyers attended a bee call out. Bees were identified as solitary / masonry bees. Once it was explained to the customer these species cause no problems it was agreed to let them bee .

Finished #beehotel ready for some guests 😘.....let's welcome bees to our gardens and neighbourhoods, #beesarenecessary
Apologies for the #sheshed spam, but... *excitement*!!Yesterday, just as I was telling a good buddy at work about some long coveted plans to keep #bees and #nativebees this cute #beehotel was gifted to us (from another friend!). If you’ve read the book ‘The honeybee’s heart has five openings’ by Helen Jukes you’ll share my excitement about that reference! Here’s our ‘Beedapest Hotel’ - ready for instalment on the southwest wall of #miasglorioussheshed right next to #miaskitchengarden Did you know that a huge proportion of #native bees are #solitarybees ? Hopefully some will enjoy our hospitality 🌱🌼🐝🌸🌷🐝

Just when I thought the girls were dead, they produced a bunch of capped straws over the weekend! ———————————————— The alfalfa leafcutting bee (Megachile rotundata) is a solitary bee that nests in cavities. Pictured above is a nesting block where females have created nests inside the straws. Once complete, she “caps” the nest by glueing leaf pieces at the entrance with nectar and saliva. The number of offspring in each nest can vary depending on many factors, including resource availability.  #alfalfaleafcuttingbee #megachilerotundata #solitarybees #beehotel #nests #activitybox #beeresearch #ndsu #gradstudent #gradlife #phdstudent #soproud #womeninscience #nd #fargo #bees

No treballo per a tu, treballo amb tu.

Agafo nèctar per tenir energia per volar, no l'acumularé en forma de mel que tu m'agafaries. El polen d'aquesta Kalanchoe blossfeldiana tampoc el cullo per a tu, servirà de proteïna a les larves dels ous que vaig dipositant en galeries resguardades. Això sí, cada flor que visito, com les dels teus fruiters la pol•linitzo i és per mi que qualla el fruit. .
..
No cal que me'n donis les gràcies, no ho faig per a tu, dóna'n les gràcies a la Natura, que té solucions per a tot...
.
Encara que no ho faci per tu, coopero amb tu, encara q tu potser tu... aprenguis a valorar-ho solament amb el pas del temps 😊😉

Can you see the bee? This is Colletes, a cellophane bee. She lines underground  egg cells with a waterproof substance that is much like cellophane. She is another native, solitary bee. #thebeeswaggle #knowyourbees #nativebees #bees #solitarybees #colorado #macrophotography
Return your leafcutter bees to @portagebaygrange today (we’re here 10-2pm today) and take home some chickens. Or ducks. Or a bunny! 🐝🐓🦆🐰#backyardhomestead #solitarybees #leafcutterbees
Ivy Ming bee colony #greenwichpark #london #urban #wildlife #solitarybees #bees 🐝 🐝
Spent the afternoon with the nephews doing some renovations to a bee/insect hotel we bought from @bunnings We removed the wire and loose timber offcuts from the bottom section; and added more bamboo and some pithy lantana stems. We also redrilled the larger holes so they were deeper and added a few smaller holes.
The bottom section will oneday be filled with some clay (when we can find some; any suggestions?) for the blue banded bees. 
And finally, we finished it off with a few coats of beetroot juice which gave it a nice rosy colour. #beehotel #australiannativebees #nativebees #solitarybees #thispatchofdirt #noideawhatimdoing

Just a couple of shots that were completely blurry as I followed the Peacock Carpenter Bees round one of my Salvias.

It was fascinating watching the leaf cutter bees in my garden over the summer. They made their nests in pots in our greenhouse, then covered the entrance up with little stones when they were finished. I don't want to disturb them so unfortunately that does mean some plants can't be moved or potted up for now.
There was one bee which was particularly sweet - every morning when we went to open the greenhouse door it was waiting to go in, back to building it's nest. They obviously remember their favourite routes - the window was left open to the greenhouse so it could have just gone in and out whenever it wanted, but no, it had to use the door!! There was another bee which I think must have been making a nest in my strawberry container. I had to move the pot and the bee was totally confused - it kept flying around looking lost (the pot was only a short distance away). Poor bee! I hope it found the nest again!

1. The Ivy Bee (Colletes hederae) is officially out in the Aberystwyth area. The ivy itself is a few days off from fully flowering, so should expect to see more of these guys. This one at the same site I had them at last year.

2. Thick-thighed Hoverfly (Syritta pippiens) female, enjoying the garden mint.

3. The marmalade hoverfly (Episyrphus balteatus). A common hoverfly, but always photogenic.

4 & 5. The speckled Bush-cricket (Leptophyes punctatissima) 🦗. I don't think I've ever come across an adult of this species before, despite them being so common. Male pictured.

6, 7 and 8. Common wasp (Vespula vulgaris) loving the squished rotting pears in the garden. So much so, they were getting on each others nerves.

9. Eristalis tenax female. Another common hoverfly, but this individual was particularly fresh in appearance.

Stumbled across a swarm of solitary bees. Solitary stingless bees so relax people. So called because they live alone. The UK has 250+ different bee species. 90% of which are solitary. They’re far better pollinators than social bees. One red mason bee is the equivalent of 120 honeybees in the pollination it provides. They also don’t have pollen baskets like their honey bee cousins. They lose a lot of pollen after visiting flowers which in turn helps pollinate the flower. #mantralandscapes #pollinators #solitarybees #bees #savethebees #thebeesknees #savetheworld

🐝20 + Reeves Filled with Cocoons for next years offspring!🐝😎🤙🐝One of these Reeves on average holds 6 + Cocoons! Rough estimate I'm holding around 100 baby bee Cocoons here! So excited to crack these Reeves open in October. From there they will go in a container and be stored in the Refrigerator to hibernate through the winter.
 Next spring I will get them out of the fridge and put them in a release box that will be placed in my bee house #beeproducer #solitarybees #savethebees 🐝 🐝

Made a solitary native bee hotel/motel from the #westernredcedar scrapes from my recent stingless bee hive builds. Had some bad tear out whist drilling holes that I am not thrilled about but I am sure the bees won’t care too much. Holes filled with native and honeybee wax. #solitarybees #beemotel #beehotel #beehotels #beehouse #nativebees #nativebeesaustralia
New flush-mounting brackets arrived for the solitary bee house prototype. Five roof color options. Two nesting hole diameters standard. #beehouse #nativebees #beehotel #solitarybees #nativebeehouse #nativebeehotel #solitarybeehouse #solitarybee #solitarybees
Anyone else mourning the end of the Summer season and with it no more leaf cutter and red mason bees in nesting action? 😢

Vacancies! High rise bee accommodation. 3 units already let! A perfectly imperfect mini bee pot from @greensndblueuk and a plant from the plant sick bay- perfect combination! I’m sure the bees won’t mind! 🐝Another little bit of Cornwall has come to Kent 😀

Help my garden is invaded by solitary bees ( minor bees) which live in holes in the ground, they don’t sting humans but can they sting me ? #puppy #pugalierpuppy #pugalier #pugalierbugzy #bees #solitarybee #solitarybees
Bees don't just make honey. This little wool carder bee is collecting fibers from this lamb's ear leaf for nesting.

Bonus garden blog today! All about how I garden for pollinators, what I mean by my 75/25 planting plan, what you can plant if you want to help our bug friends, what to plant now for next spring and how the @the_rhs Perfect for  Pollinator scheme is a good place to start. Also links to @bumblebeeconservationtrust and @savebutterflies. Link in bio. (Ps, this photo is probably one of my favourites ever, taken by me at Sissinghurst @nationaltrust. No idea what type of bees they are though)

How lucky was I to have @two_little_poppets as a parent in my class this year! You have been absolutely instrumental in our steam projects this term as well as so many other countless things you do for me!! Including this A-MAZING bee hotel made for our junior innovators club. So so lucky!!! #osssteam #inquirybasedlearning #steam #sustainability #beehotel #solitarybees #aussieteachers #teacherslife #kindergartenteacher #ausfbprepteachers #iteachtoo #iteachk #iteach
My latest bee hotel set up in my backyard. Made by James Atkins; funds raised go to the Lyneham Commons Food Forest. Hope that a number of species of solitary native bees will be attracted to this 'hotel'.

Beautiful sunflowers and bees in my yard!  #solitarybees #sunflower
September's #Solitarybee of the month is the Pantaloon bee (Dasypoda hirtipes). Females have oversized orange pollen brushes on their hind legs, giving the impression of a bee wearing pantaloons! www.bumblebeeconservation.org/pantaloon-bee

I’ve started planting my vertical garden! It’s south facing and has herbs, ivy, hebe, heather, hellebores and some home-made solitary bee habitats. I’m really excited to see how it develops over time

Miss Piggy 🐷 
This little one CAN fly. I’ve held her a metre away from these coneflowers and she’s flown back to them perfectly...but she won’t leave them! She’s become effectively obsessed with them. There’s nothing wrong with a healthy appetite and it’s beautiful watching them all feed, but doing it for over an hour? She’s tried hiding in between the petals then popping up again, feeding again. I know she can fly (which is frustrating) but she should be feeding and finding a place of safety. Giving them both a rest before trying again 😅

Getting this one and her sister onto pollen rich plants has backfired somewhat 😞 little waffy wings has no interest in grooming or feeding and is trying to fly on unworkable wings. She crawling everywhere, reaching with her front legs and her efforts are getting her no where fast. She’s been put back into a tank to rest but I’ll keep attempting her to do some serious grooming 🐝

The Great Escape 🐝

The girls getting ready to go! A majority of them have flown. With 4 not quite ready to leave and still grooming (but it’s a sunny day tomorrow too) and one of those is just refusing to come out of her cocoon!?! Two have sadly passed away 😞 but all the others have gone! Trying to head count and monitor them was fun, with a couple launching out of their tank like speeding bullets! Got landed on many times and was lovely seeing them fly. I have no idea how well they’re going to do, but have moved lots of flowers I bought last week for them outside, removed cobwebs from all visible areas and have no tenants in the bee hotels it’ll be interesting if they stay close by...
One of the girls was immediately grabbed by one of boys so I might end up with 7 eyed bees as I think they’re all related 🤔

Good luck little ones 🤗🐝💕 #bees #solitarybees #osmialeaiana #pollinators #pollinatorgarden #solitarybee #goodluck #naturelovers #naturephotography #havefun #keepsafe #dontforgettowrite #🐝

Carpenter bee in 'Flying Saucer' morning glory flower. This one was so loaded with pollen that it looked a bit drunk trying to move among the flowers and ended up chilling in this flower for a long time.🐝💕 #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #gardening #flowers #flowerphotography #amateurphotography #bees #solitarybees #insects #colorado
Following on the #theft and subsequent #kidnapping of my #solitarybees and assorted #insect friends, new #secure #accommodation has been installed and I’m looking for new tenants! Your #security 👮🏻‍♀️ is my priority… the new #insecthotel benefits from full #1080HD #CCTV and is now open with #vacancies! #cityfarmer

O days, minutes or days left to apply.
Thank you, thank you, thank you 🙏 to everyone who applied to take part in FIFTY BEES 3.
I now need to sift through the applicant statements, look at the beautiful photos and read the proposal and look for a good balance of media and imagery. Oh no - I’m not looking forward to this/but I am too! 
Apologies to anyone who struggled with the form and the uploads and special thank to those of you who don’t get through - it’s a tough call.

How is it possible? Only two more days left to see the second leg of the FIFTY BEES project, the bees and all of the incredible companion artworks - I’m going to be sad to see this show come down. 
What do you mean you haven’t been there yet? Get your skates on. Open tomorrow, Friday 31st August from 9am to 1pm.
Oh, and if that wasn’t a short deadline enough, you’ve got 24 hours to apply to be in FIFTY BEES 3! Phew!

Oh. Em. BEE!  Our fabulous friends in Cub Scout Pack 343 completed an awesome servuce project for us, building 18 bee condos for orchard, mason, and other solitary bees to overwinter in.  These condos will be installed across our conserved properties and provide vital habitat to our native pollinators.
