Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Eastern Carpenter Bee
Class:Insecta Order:Hymenoptera Family:Apidae


These bees love Phlox, Echinacea, Bee Balm and Rose Of Sharon - perhaps anything with a bloom. They will spend a long time on a single plant, methodically working their way from flower to flower. Sometimes when it rains they hang under the flowers for shelter. They will occasionally skirmish with butterflies and other bumblebees in late August, when I presume they are mating. They are one of the last bloom-riders to disappear as the plants die and the weather turns colder.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
