    Been reading and watching some info on these bee species. Non- stinging and not honey makers, but these bee species claimed to triple garden production through more intense pollination from these species of bees?

    I know I've cussed em a bunch over the years for plugging up every spare hose, or part with a 1/4" hole in it. Now I put a piece of tape over anything I may need for an emergency fix.

    Idk why but the last couple years the carpenter bees are flat doing some damage to wooden structures. Aggravating bastages. I keep a can of ether or something similar on the porch to give their holes a shot when I see notice em. They can have a noticeable pile of sawdust when ya get home from work. Thet seem to favor the rough cut pine lath boards over the oak flooring...for now.
