Time to talk about the birds and the bees

It's the time of year to talk about the birds and the bees!Are you curious about wild bees' lifecycle? You may already know that our native mason and leafcutter bees are only flying as adults for a short 4-6 weeks. Most wild hole-nesting bees also have a short adult lifespan but some wild hole-nesting bees, like female carpenter bees, can live for years!Even though the world is home to a huge diversity of bee species, they all share a common feature - mother bees are able to choose the sex of each egg!
