    Default I've got BOB

    Last year I put up a Blue Orchard Bee nest. I think it was too late, but I left it up anyway. I had several different kinds of bees lay eggs. Some stuffed pieces of grass in the hole, others different materials. I thought it was
    interesting, but was disappointed I didn't get any mason bees. I was working the bees yesterday and passed the nest & Guess what!! I saw several BOB coming and going!!

    It's been all over the place lately. Anywhere from 60's to 80's.

    we are back in the 50's to low 60's at the moment. I think, however, I saw a BOB yesterday while picking rocks out of my flower bed. It was small, black or dark blue..and flew up and out of a flower.

    Very cool Park County- i wish i had leafcutter bees too like you apparently got last year!
    No bees out yet here - 30-40 at night, 40-60 daytime. Should only be a few more days before things warm up better and masons start emerging and things start blooming more.
    My mason bees make me smile. they're like the little shaggy Shetland ponies of the bee world.
