Summer Leaf Bees

Summer Leaf bees are essential contributors to productive gardens and farms. They are amazing at flying through tight spaces pollinating blooms as they buzz by! They love all flowers and spread pollen across a wide range of crops, including berries, tomatoes, peppers, squash, beans, and peas, making them wonderful partners for growers seeking bountiful harvests.

Their innocent leaf-cutting behavior, using about a leaf a day, surrounds their gathered pollen for their eggs.

These bees are gentle, unlike their honey bee counterparts, and have no colonies to defend and rarely sting, making them safe and approachable for families and pets. Their gentle nature allows for up-close observation and interaction, providing an enriching experience for enthusiasts of all ages. By welcoming summer leaf bees into the garden, individuals not only support biodiversity and ecosystem health but also cultivate a peaceful coexistence with these valuable pollinators.
