Do queen bumblebees like violets?
Karen Anderson
01:13:31
do they utilize woodland poppies?

Bluebells?

What about Dog Wood
Mark Long
01:23:27
what are your thoughts on bee houses?
atomicmatter
01:24:05
Are there native Mason Bees in Maryland?
Susan Gitlin
01:27:34
Many people say that they plant non-native plants in order to provide food for bees early in the year and late in the fall -- when native plants are not blooming. You mentioned that purple nettle helps queen bees early in the year, but that was for improving lawn forage. Generally, do you think that we should be seeking ways to feed bees in native plants' off-season?
Richard Markeloff

I have a pretty big bee that loved by Phlox this spring. It had a long tongue. Smaller than a bumblebee but still large. I wonder what species is was
Trish Wotowiec
01:32:29
Would carpenter bees be one of those 'larger than bumble bees' common bees in our yards? Don't know the scientific name...
Roxanne Paul
01:32:44
Why are they called sweat bees? Because we are sweating when they come out?
Richard Markeloff
01:33:42
At least some species are attracted to sweat droplets on skin
Mary Schwegler
01:33:48
I had huge bees, longer than bumblebees, that flocked to the (Japanese?) holly at my window.
Mary Schwegler
01:35:33
Chestnut trees have a pronounced odor some folks don't like.
Mary Schwegler
01:36:01
When flowering.
Rebecca McMackin
01:36:08
THAT IS AMAZING! The loss of chestnut for pollinators just blew my mind. There’s such a lull in flowers at that time. Chestnut must have been so important.
Jerilyn
01:37:32
Yep! have to check out chinquapins...
Evelyn Manlove
01:43:26
What was the name of that white morning glory with a specialist?
Jerilyn
01:45:25
maybe Ipomoea pandurata?
Richard Markeloff
01:48:42
Bumblebees just love my Asclepias exaltata
Richard Markeloff
01:48:54
The swarm all over it when it blooms
Mary Schwegler
01:53:30
So these sunflowers would be good for woodland edges and bits of partly shaded areas?
Richard Markeloff
01:54:04
Helianthus divartica is a nice plant for partly shady places
Mary Schwegler
01:54:15
Thx.
Richard Markeloff
01:55:03
My Eurybia swarm with little bees when they bloom
Richard Markeloff
01:55:11
They must be Andrena

I tried to grow Pasture Thistle from seed but they either got eaten or didn't germinate. I don't know of any place that sells it.

Thank you Sam. As a British native, it would be useful to me to have the latin names of the plants as well as the bees, I'm not familiar with the common names
