Alternative Vegetable Garden Native Pollinators
I raise a large vegetable garden every year. I'd like to build nest to attract native pollinators to help pollinate my garden. Any recommendations? My honeybees pollinate most of my vegetables and berries but ignore my okra, tomatoes, beans, peppers, and strawberries. My okra is pollinated by a native black bee, July-September, similar in size to honeybees but a much quicker flier. Any idea what bee this is? Any native bees help pollinate tomatoes, beans, peppers, strawberries? I live in South Central Kansas with ph 7 heavy clay soil. Thanks!
