NATIVE BEES | are gentle solitary bees with extraordinary pollinating abilities. With around 3600 species of native to North America, these bees are essential to the pollination of flowers, vegetables and spring fruit trees. Native bees are known as solitary bees because they nest alone. Unlike honey bees, native bees do not produce honey and do not defend a hive so stinging very rarely happens. The female’s stinger is actually her egg tube, so should a rare sting occur, there is no barb or venom. One native bee pollinates two to three times more than a honeybee.
