when out in your garden next watch the bees as they gather pollen, they move in and out of the flower, grooming the pollen grains off their bodies and they use their legs to push the grains down to their pollen baskets. It’s mesmerizing.
So. Not here yet. There have been sightings along zero avenue near the border with Washington State. Efforts are being made to track any sightings and eradicate nests if found. NOT something we want established. Should you encounter a nest (they are ground nesters like yellow jackets) – DO NOT APPROACH, report instead!!
If you see something this big buzzing around it’s critical that you contact or report to the BC Ministry of Apiculture or the BC Invasive Species council.
