    Default solitary bee with pollen sacs

    Sorry I didn't get a pic, I knew it would help but forgot my phone when I checked on a " bee problem" today. Anyways, these bees were definitely not honeybees, they looked like drones with square butts and about the same size as a drone honey bee. It was my understanding that most mason or solitary bees carry pollen on their abdomen, but some species do have pollen baskets, anyone know which ones they are, Google was no help to me

    Default Re: solitary bee with pollen sacs

    I'm pretty sure leaf cutters do. I have a lot of solitary bees in my bee barns. It seems like some others do as well, but I can't say I could identify them all...
