Carpenter bee

Deceptive appearance

Deceptive appearance

This carpenter bee seems too heavy for the delicate sweet pea flower it’s poised on.

It looks evil, too, but carpenter bees are very docile and great pollinators.

    We have a huge community of them here. They’re busily dismantling my chicken coop–LOL! I find wood shavings on a daily basis from the holes they “drill” into the wood.

      That’s very interesting. I don’t think we have a community here, but I don’t know where they’re burrowing – hopefully not in the roof timbers. What do your chickens think about it?

        They don’t give them a second thought. Crickets, on the hand… gourmet treats apparently!
