Just spent an hour searching the local hedgerows for Ivy Bees and Wasp-grabbers. No luck, but lots of everything else. 10 minutes drive away, the next village is groaning under the weight of Ivy Bees! Here's one from there; a few days ago.

Solitary bees do not live in hives, produce honey or have a queen.

Solitary bee do not have pollen basket. Each time they visit a flower they lose more pollen compared with honey bees or bumble bees. This makes them better pollinators.

I've just ordered some Leafcutter Bees from Bee Gap. They're solitary, docile, don't produce honey and are great at fertilising plants. They start delivering bees from October - January. Check them out here:
