Blue Banded Bees

by Anne Dollin, Aussie Bee

-- a native blue banded bee, Amegilla, sipping nectar from flowers with her long tongue. Blue banded bees seem to particularly like purple and blue flowers.

-- a blue banded bee jostling for a position on a roost in the evening. The males often sleep in groups like this at night, clinging to a twig or grass stem with their jaws.

Native blue banded bees are promising potential pollinators of greenhouse tomatoes for the horticultural industry.
