Bees

The wood boring polinators

It looks like the carpenter bees tested this spot out then gave up to drill their nest under the manger:

It could also be bald faced hornets, which I’ve seen around, harvesting starch to build their paper nests.

Either way, both serve important ecological functions and can’t bore into any structural wood, so they are welcome!

  1. Maybe you could help me identify what is hovering around our trees at night. I think it is a bee of some type. There are hundreds of them. The pictures aren’t that great because they were moving quickly. My latest post has some photos. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
