På Luciadagen blir det traditionsenligt buksamlarbin. De har en tät hårpäls på undersidan av bakkroppen. När de rör sig i blommorna fastnar pollenet i håren på magen. På andra bilden har ett nävertapetserarbi samlat på sig ett lager orange vialpollen. Tapetserarbina (ett bisläkte) heter så för att de tapetserar sina bon med bladbitar. Ibland samlar nävertapetserabiet lite näver för att tapetsera barnkammaren med. Det är så gulligt! På första bilden ett vialtapetserarbi. För den sparar jag kråkvicker i min trädgård, men ännu har den inte visat sig fast den flyger bara 100 meter bort. Bland vickrar och vialer finns många fina växter som lite större solitärbin gärna flyger på. Hit hör kråkvicker, häckvicker, vårärt, strandvial, gökärt och vippärt. De passar bra som vävarväxter i rabatter eller i den blommande gräsmattan. En del finns i trädgårdsformer medan andra ofta kallas ogräs. #nävertapetserarbi #megachileanalis #vialtapetserarbi #megachilenigriventris #tapetserarbin #megachile #buksamlarbin #megachilidae #solitärbi #solitarybee #bi #bee #vicker #vicia #vial #lathyrus #trädgårdsmyller #odlaförbin #pollinerare #pollinator #pollineramera
Preparing a solitary bee house.😊🐝
“I know someone who kisses the way a flower opens, but more rapidly. Flowers are sweet. They have short, beatific lives. They offer much pleasure. There is nothing in the world that can be said against them. Sad, isn’t it, that all they can kiss is the air. Yes, yes! We are the lucky ones.” -Mary Oliver  I love Mary Oliver and this poem, but flowers do get to kiss more than air, they get to kiss bees and all sorts of other pollinating beauties! For that, I think we are all pretty lucky! 💛
Spent my afternoon hanging out with a Wool Carder Bee! A solitary bee species first sighted in NZ in 2006. Although aggressive to other pollen seeking insects, it has had no serious negative effect on the endemic fauna. - - - #🐝 #newzealand #nelson #nelsonnz #nature #bee #woolcarder #woolcarderbee #insectagram #bugsofinstagram #pollinators #macro #macrophotography #tamron #canon #300mm #wildnz #wildlife #solitarybee
Sobersandbi, den mest bedårande insekten i hela världen. Visst är hon fin? Jag har letat efter sobersandbiet i några år och 2018 fick jag träffa den tre gånger. I en skånsk bokskog och i en skånsk äppelodling, där hon flög på maskros. Och så den 6 juni i vår blommande gröngödsling i Matparken Gottsunda, Uppsala. Då blev jag nöjd! Vi har blandat in kummin för att få grunda blommor för små insekter. Här är hela receptet på gröngödsling för humlor, solitärbin och naturliga fiender som nyckelpigor och parasitsteklar: Käringtand 0,2 g/kvm Rödklöver 0,3 g/kvm Vitklöver 0,3 g/kvm Kummin 0,2 g/kvm Gräsblandning 0,5 g/kvm  #sobersandbi #andrenacineraria #solitärbi #solitarybee #bi #bee #trädgårdsmyller #kummin #carumcarvi #blommandegröngödsling #gröngödsling #pollinerare #pollinator #pollineramera #matparken
If you come across a blue banded bee you will instantly fall in love with these beautiful and amazing solitary bees. Check out this blue banded bee’s big and brilliant eyes!
Very sad to report that my little bee buddy Precious passed away peacefully yesterday evening. Yesterday morning, she seemed a little slower than usual but was still enjoying her flower buffet and rare winter sunshine.  I didn’t expect her to make it to her four weeks life expectancy having hatched with wing problems, but she surpassed my expectations of making it to nearly four months. She was a much loved little guest at the bee & bee and with all the guests, she taught me a great many things.  Thank you to everyone who was a part of her journey 💕  #emsbeeandbee #solitarybee #mylittlefriend #sleepwellbuddy #🐝

Trädgårdssandbiet är en vanlig och viktig pollinerare på fruktträd och bärbuskar. Den flyger precis i den perioden när äpple och päron blommar, men också tidigare. För att locka trädgårdssandbi, sobersandbi, gyllensandbi, rödmurarbi och andra solitärbin till fruktodlingar måste vi också erbjuda blommande träd och buskar innan äppelblomningen. Så se till att plantera Prunus (körsbär, plommon) och Ribes (röda vinbär, svarta vinbär och krusbär) inuti och runt fruktodlingar. Trädgårdssandbiet finns i hela Sveriges odlingsområden. Du känner igen den på den brunröda ryggen.  #trädgårdssandbi #andrenahaemorrhoa #solitärbi #solitarybee #bi #bee #trädgårdsmyller #odlaförbin #pollinerare #pollinator
After days of trying, finally a photo of one of the Masonry bees that pollinate my plants. Unlike honey/hive bees these amazing little guys will dig into soft rock to form their burrow, where they will live a mostly solitary life!  #bee #polinator #masonrybee #solitarybee #organicgardening #urbangardener #beethechange #savethebees
Lucka 7 öppnar jag för alla begåvade och kreativa Malmö-tjejer. Ett tips till er och andra med stort hjärta och liten plånbok: Odla kryddväxter! Basilika, kungsmynta, (oregano), mejram, timjan, isop, stenkyndel och myntor hör alla till den kransblommiga familjen som humlorna älskar. Lättodlade växter som tål torka och passar på balkongen. Komplettera med gräslök, tagetes och blomsterkrasse så har du ätbara blommor för både bin och människor. Även smultron är torktåliga, medan jordgubbar kräver mer vatten. Båda gillas av sandbin och smalbin. Detta illustrerar vi med vårpälsbiet, mitt favoritbi. (Jag vet att jag har många favoritbin, men det får en ha.) Vårpälsbiet är ett nytt bi för Sverige som finns i Skåne. I Malmö flyger de bland annat i Slottsträdgården och Pildammsparken, redan i april. Stora, ulliga, gulliga bin är det. På bilderna syns två bruna honor, men de kan också vara helt svarta.  #vårpälsbi #anthophoraplumipes #solitärbi #solitarybee #bi #bee #trädgårdsmyller #odlaförbin #pollinerare #pollinator

December's #solitarybee of the month is the Gooden’s Nomad bee (Nomada goodeniana), one of the largest & most common Nomad bees in the UK. Nomads are wasp-like, cleptoparasites which will target unsealed pollen-stocked nest cells created by their Mining bee hosts and lay their own eggs inside...

A Reed Bee I spotted at the beach today 😀🐝
Sälgsandbi, ännu ett solitärbi som bygger bo i sandig jord. När vi vill gynna solitärbin måste vi erbjuda både föda och boplatser. Tänk på att 70 procent av våra solitärbiarter bor i jorden och inte i insektshotell. Sandiga sydvända slänter med gles vegetation är bra, så att bina kan gräva med sina små ben. Sälgsandbiet vaknar tidigt på våren och vill samla pollen på Salix, dvs. sälg och vide. Daggvide, ullvide, dvärgvide och krypvide är fina Salix för trädgårdsändamål. I E-plantsortimentet finns krypvide 'Grey carpet’. På den andra bilden är honan på väg ner i sitt bo med benen fulla av gult pollen.  #sälgsandbi #andrenavaga #solitärbi #solitarybee #bi #bee #pollinerare #pollinator #trädgårdsmyller #salix
Thanks to Sherrell from @sewtheseeds for asking me to explain how other artists are involved in the FIFTY BEES project. I’ve included a high speed video of the first exhibition that was held at @acearts_somerton last year but I’ll show you some close ups too. What happens is, fifty artist are approached or apply to take part.  They are then allocated one of the fifty specific British bees that I have chosen to make that year (there are 275 so we’ve got six exhibition planned over six years). So, each artist is then expected to go and research their 🐝- they look into the bees habitat, food, landscape, predators etc. Some bees have MASSES of information about them on the internet, some have very little. It doesn’t really matter what the artists find, they just need a ‘hook’ into their Bee. Their job is to then create one piece of work that is about the bees ecology, not the bee itself. So then we get a hugely diverse exploration about bees and there’s something for everyone and we have a room full of artwork that is also something of a scientific exploration too. It’s remarkable what people have come up with. I’ll share some with you now. . . . #scientificexploration #sciencemeetsart #artmeetsscience #fiftybees #bees #bee #bumblebee #solitarybee #insects

Smalbin är små, svarta bin som finns nästan överallt. De finns säkert i din trädgård. Hos min vän @mullberget bor de under stenplattorna. Så hittar du sådana här högar med hål så kan det vara solitärbin. De skadar varken hus eller människor och sticks inte, så låt dem bara vara.  #smalbi #lasioglossum #solitärbi #solitarybee #bi #bee #pollinerare #pollinator #trädgårdsmyller #pollineramera #gulltörel #solitarybeehour

I dagens lucka kikar storullbiet ut. Han har övernattat i ett hål och värmer sig i morgonsolen. Honan samlar hår på lammöron som hon fodrar boet med. Båda älskar lammöron.

Solitary native bee.
Buff-tailed bumblebee. Happy sunday. Soviel zu meiner Weihnachtsstimmung 😃 Diese Königin der Dunklen Erdhummel war noch bis zum 8. November im Garten unterwegs. Auf dem zweiten (grausigen) Foto ist das, im Herbst, neu angelegte Stück Bienen- und Schmetterlingswiese. *Vorfreude* Ganz oben ist zwischenzeitlich der zukünftige Teich ausgehoben, der Grundstock für ein Sandarium gelegt und 2300 Blumenzwiebeln hab ich auch gesetzt. Ich würde dann jetzt gern in den Winterschlaf gehen und im März wieder aufwachen 😉 #werbrauchtschonwinter . . . . . #naturgarten #naturschutz #erdhummel #bufftailedbumblebee #bombusterrestris #beesofinstagram #rettetdiebienen #bumblebee #nativepollinators #savethebees #gardenlove #macro #instagarden #solitarybee #nature #naturephotography #macrophotography #insects #insectsofinstagram #meingarten #instagardenlovers #naturalgarden #naturliebe
Nu blir det adventskalender. Ett bi varje dag och ett trädgårdstips! Vi börjar med ett citronbi, troligtvis ängscitronbi. Citronbina är pyttesmå kala bin som samlar pollen i munnen. De trivs på flockblommiga växter som stjärnflocka, morot, blomstermorot och koriander. I min trädgård håller de till i blodnäva, som hanen på bilden.  #citronbi #hylaeus #ängscitronbi #hylaeusconfusus #solitärbi #solitarybee #bi #bee #pollinerare #pollinator

Leaf-cutter Bees  Megachile species  The presence of leafcutter bees is usually indicated by their distinctive leaf damage. Females cut distinctive oval and circular pieces from soft leaves to make the cells of their nests. Gingers and roses are common plants targeted but they use a wide range of leaves. Nests are usually built in existing crevices such as window frames or hollow twigs and stems. Sometimes they nest in old garden gloves, sprinklers, hoses and even between the fold of old towels left outside. A few species burrow in the soil👩‍🌾 *  #bee #bees #leafcutterbee #ipswichqld #discoveripswich #garden #cottagegarden #ecosystem #backyard #naturelover #nature #all_things_bees #beeporn #beepower #naturephotography #solitarybee #pollinators #insects #colour #👩‍🌾

What a difference a day makes... Lack of sunshine from one day to the next has left Precious either hunkered down inside her sleeping tube on dark, wet days, to being up and active when valuable sunshine seems to make a guest appearance. I haven’t seen a solitary bee this late in the year normally. Winter is usually a time to catch up and improve what I’ve learnt earlier the same year. So having Precious still with me has left me scratching my head on more mimicry to attempt when normally by bee items would be in storage until Spring. During spring however, when my mason’s were hatching and the weather would suddenly turn grey, cold and wet, I’d give them ‘kitchen time’. The light in my kitchen would perk them up in a way that was a decent replacement to the sun. Precious has not enjoyed the S.A.D. Light I attempted to use so that was quickly stopped. Today she has popped out and stayed up way past her little bedtime due to hanging out in the kitchen.  So now I’m researching lights before all the sunshine is gone for good. When my flowers have all gone I have a back up to try for nectar too 🐝  At a sniff over 3 months old now, I’d like her still to stick around for as long as possible.  #precious #emsbeeandbee #solitarybeekeeping #osmialeaiana #solitarybee #bee #mylittlebuddy #🐝 #ihaveacunningplan #lettherebelight

November's #solitarybee of the month is the Ivy mining bee (Colletes hederae). First spotted in UK in 2001, these relative newcomers  can be seen in autumn, coinciding with ivy flowering, which (as the name suggests) is their main food source. http://ow.ly/2BwM30mB9di  Photo credit: Steven Falk
Green&Blue Bee Bricks, Blocks, planters and the Beepost are safe and stylish ways to provide nesting habitat for solitary bees.  Because they’re made of concrete they won’t rot or deteriorate like wooden bee houses can do and they make a really lovely feature in the garden. And when you sit and you watch cavity nesting species like red masons or leafcutter bees coming in and out, creating their nests and provisioning for the offspring they will never see, you are reassured by the simplicity, beauty and permanence of nature and of wildlife. There’s something primeval about it. What a gift to give this Christmas!
pretty sure this was a male mason bee bc it was TINY, you can’t tell from the pictures but each of the flowers he’s sat on only grows to just over a centimetre (~0.5 inches) in diameter, so the actual bee is about the same size 😢 love my smol son ☺️ #bee #solitarybee #masonbee #osmialatreillei #malebee #biene #solitärbiene #mauerbiene #commontansy #rainfarn #wurmkraut #beesofinstagram #berlinbees
Zurich Railway Station #greenroofs - first visited in 2002 these green roofs are some of my favourite. And they are not all #green - they are #ecological #habitat creation on top of the platform roofs at #hauptbahnhof #zurich. Designed as mitigation for a #lizard and a rare #solitarybee, these roofs replicate alluvial gravel habitat associated with rivers in #switzerland. This type of #ecologicalrestoration should be an important reason why we do green roofs. Of course the roofs also provide other #ecosystemservices - as #naturebasedsolutions they are also providing for #nature.  Although these #roofs are 16 years old this type of approach is still a challenge for a lot of #architects and #lamdscapearchitects. Green roofs should be about #horticultural bling - they should have ecological integrity @greenroofscom @livingroofsinc @newyorkgreenroofs @greenroofsaus @greenroofecology @bldveg

Precious looking snazzy 🤗 We haven’t had much sunshine recently and her breakfast flowers would usually have some time to heat up in the warmth of the sun triggering the nectar she so enjoys. So I’ve started picking and spider checking her fresh flowers and putting them on a little plastic tray and popping them on the radiator for a bit before giving them to her. A quick check inside one shows nectar inside when it wasn’t previously due to the cold. Even so, colder starts to the morning isn’t impressive to Princess Precious 😂 but given we’re now trying ever trick in the book to mimic summer conditions for her in early Winter, I’d hope she’d be a bit less grumpy 🤗  #emsbeeandbee #solitarybee #mylittlebuddy #🐝 #solitarybeekeeping

Did you know Oregon is the ONLY state in the county with a funded mandate to create a strategic health plan for pollinators?⁣ ⁣ There are over 500 native 🐝 species in Oregon, and the honeybee isn’t one of these.⁣ ⁣ Most of these native 🐝s are solitary, meaning they do not live in a hive or social community.⁣ ⁣ These 🐝s are also non-aggressive, and often do not even have stingers.⁣ ⁣ Bumblebees and other native bees are essential in pollinating many of the crops that make up Oregon’s $6 billion agriculture industry. ⁣ ⁣ To prevent potential pollinator decline, the state has created the Oregon Bee Project.⁣ ⁣ Currently, there is an ongoing ‘Oregon Bee Atlas’—that anyone can become a volunteer for and add to—which is recording every bee species in Oregon, in order to later asses the stability of these populations.⁣ ⁣ The idea is that, if the Oregon Bee Atlas can chart where various 🐝 species live and what plants they pollinate, we can better protect and even cultivate them.⁣ ⁣ Un-bee-lievable! ⁣(Photo by Oregon Dept. of Agriculture)

I’ve now given up counting how old Precious is. She’s doing amazing and as long as this Autumn sunshine lasts, she’s happy 🤗 this morning she’s been scampering about as usual which I always find enchanting 💕🐝 #emsbeeandbee #🐝 #solitarybee #solitarybeekeeping
“Buzzed”  This lil dude was hanging out as I shot a closeup of a part of some plants (more fun than it sounds!) for a weekly challenge I participate in with the great peeps at @floridacollective. This weeks challenge was all about zooming in on landscape. Here’s my zoom, taken with a groovy Lensbaby Velvet 85 (gawd even the name is smooth) lens and my trusty Canon t6i (a solid entry level DSLR IMHO). With the Lensbaby you can get some cool effects in camera, on top of the infrared image that I know and love. My little friend looks more furry than focus, but I think we worked well together. So ends another week of being above ground and connecting with all of you fine people. New memories begin tomorrow! Hug your babies IG Friends 🙏 * * * #lensbaby #lensbabyvelvet85 #solitarybee #beesofinstagram
90 % des abeilles sont solitaires, elles font leur nid dans des tunnels où elles fabriquent des loges; il n'y a pas de reine. Elles diffèrent de l'abeille à miel (Apis mellifère) qui vit en colonie. L'abeille solitaire passe l'hiver sous forme de cocon. En attendant, elle forme des boulettes de nectar et pollen dans des loges où elle pond un œuf qui y éclôt dans les 3 à 5 jours suivants; elle commence alors une nouvelle loge. Ici, je les ai trouvées dans un massif de fleurs dans un jardin (20 tunnels par mètre carré environ) Bien que solitaires (chacun pour soi) , elles peuvent occuper en nombre les milieux qui leur sont favorables.
