Native Ground Nesting Bees Need Our Help!

Ground-nesting Cellophane bees have started to emerge in the Northeast! These small fuzzy bees are  not aggressive, so if you find a nesting aggregation on your property, enjoy observing their behavior and rejoice in the fact that you are providing habitat for these important pollinators!  You can attract ground nesting native bees by leaving patches of sunny bare or sparsely vegetated soil in your yard.

Protect nesting areas by not mulching or digging in that area;  and report your sightings to Cornell’s Project Ground Nesting Bee iNaturalist page.
