I knew I had the smartest readers in the known world!!
Less than 9 hrs later and I know what bees I have. Thanks to gintoino’s comment on last night’s post calling the little bees that I have “horned bees”, I was able to cross reference that common name to find that they are “officially” called Peponapis pruinosa or “squash bees”. Which definitely applies since I find them every morning bunched up inside my zucchinis and pumpkin blossoms.
Thanks for the help gintoino, good call!
