It depends where they were joined… they often mate in flight, and although I haven’t seen more than 2 in flight mating, I have seen “mating balls” (with many hopeful male bees), and I could definitely imagine a third bee (if there was one) trying to join in mid-flight.

That’s terrible to hear, we cannot afford to lose our pollinators. They deserve a place on our planet in their own right. And then too, so many creatures (humanity included) depend upon bees.

The female leafcutter bee may construct as many as 20 of these pollen-filled bee-ritos before she’s done. This footage shows a baby leaf-cutter emerging from its cozy bee-rito. Footage by Emily Doorish 🐦Twitter 📷IG: @EmiliagoXD

Here’s the link for the OSU PolliNation podcast (there was too much to say about Ceratina to add this to my last tweet… and there’s even more to learn about the lengths to which Ceratina mothers go, do check out the podcast)!

OSU’s PolliNation podcast is incredible! #66 w/ : Ceratina (tiny bees nesting in pithy stems) have amazing family dynamics. Known as the Cinderella bee, one bee is fed less, so it is smaller with lifelong chores. Amazingly, mother bees care for offspring into adulthood!

It’s still ! I tweeted this already ~250 followers ago, but it is by far my most popular pollinator photo ever. A big, beautiful, hard working (note GIANT pollen loads) queen yellow-banded bumble bee (Bombus terricola). You go girl, pollinate your heart out! 😍🐝

Day 12 of ~ Saw bumblebees caught out in the rain, sitting cold and soaked on flower stems. Revived 4 with warmth and sugar water and they eventually flew off. Keeping 1 overnight in aerated box as too late to release 🤞🐝

For I’d like to introduce you to one of my favorite bees: cuckoo bees. As the name implies, these bees leave it to others to care for their young. I’ve seen these patrolling ground-nesting bee communities, darting down someone else’s tunnel when no one is looking!

EPA just announced 2019's so-called emergency approvals to spray sulfoxaflor, an insecticide that's very highly toxic to bees, on 13.9 million acres of bee attractive crops in 11 states. 10 of the states have gotten them for at least 4 consecutive years.

Sorry for my late reply. If your bee is still with you, have you tried putting her out in direct sunlight to warm up?

Sorry for my late reply. I would think (hope!) it knows what it’s doing… many bees are ground-nesting.
