Something to buzzzz about: this morning was quite brisk from the cold front moving through and while it was a nice change of weather for some, it caught this little honeybee off guard. our rehabber, morgan h., found the bee on the front porch of the #crowclinic cold and not really moving. she brought it inside to show the rehab manager, breanna f., who gave the bee some honey and warmth (officially our smallest patient ever). before long, the bee was recharged, ready to go and was taken outside and returned to pollinate another day!
.
pollinators, like this bee, are vital to the environment. many species of plants rely on them to grow including many of the crops that we eat!

Do you need a low-maintenance flowering perennial which flowers enthusiastically for many months and can be used as a ground cover? try erigeron daisies. erigeron (fleabane) comes from greek meaning “early” and “old man,” which references the plant’s tendency for blooming in late spring and for producing fuzzy white seed heads while simultaneously producing new flowers. erigeron is a top pollinator-attracting plant; butterflies and moths especially adore these daisies. in fact, many species of moths and butterflies feed exclusively on them. they fit well into a cottage garden when situated under bare-bottomed roses or at the base of shrubs such as hydrangeas and lilacs. and they’ll do in drying soils it’s also a great choice for rock gardens, slopes, and seaside gardens.

Moved this cute little swarm for elise @mermademarket the other day. she was extremely brave, and hung out tight beside me for the whole thing (from the safety of my suit). to help keep the swarm calm, and prevent fewer bees from dispersing into the air and then flying back to the old spot, i spray the swarm down heavily on all sides with sugar water, first (50% white only sugar with 50% water by weight, boil then add). wet bees can’t fly, which assures more bees land inside my box.
these late september swarms keep coming, and sadly have such low chances of survival without a beekeeper to get them through winter where i am. another swarm i caught this week was smaller than my fist - no doubt starving.
elise saved this swarm by calling me.
this hive is too small to go to my apiary, as weak hives get robbed when they have any nectar inside the hive that the other surrounding bees have also been foraging. (new fascinating research i just learned from randy oliver!)
for this reason you want your hives equal in size as much as possible), so i’m babysitting the tiny hives elsewhere.
come see some of my bees, taste my award-winning honey, see the zoo of swallowtail butterfly caterpillars and cocoons, and more, tomorrow, @mermademarket and a saturday @southlagunacommunitygardenpark 🐝🌸🐛🦋💐🍯

🐝nectar is a sweet watery substance that the bees gather. after they process the nectar in their stomach they regurgitate it into the honeycomb cells. then they fan with their wings to remove excess moisture. the final result is honey. #beescause #beefacts

Today...would have been 7 weeks (indoors) for nevada... unfortunately on tuesday evening she departed.
i actually miss this little girl, we formed quite a bond , for a human and a bee. she seemed to be happy that i brought her in the house. all those weeks ago. she definitely would have perished in the garden when winter made its first appearance at the beginning of september.
nevada had a fun little personality, and enjoyed her adventures as she walked about on my hands and arms. we had a friendship. she surprised me by surviving for such a long time...but what a blessing it was.
it was definitely a cool learning experience.
even the kitties enjoyed watching her every day in her bee kingdom, or putting their nose up against her if she was on my hand, until she buzzed to tell them she had enough. basically saying...”buzz off” nosy cats.
i really appreciate my time with her! so happy she found my garden. rest in peace nevada 🐝♥️

The falling waters mangave produces upward-folded, heavily-toothed leaves that will remind you of flowing waterfalls. falling waters is low maintenance; it prefers full sun and is drought-tolerant. it only grows to 10-inches tall, but spreads 30-inches, making it a perfect succulent for container gardens!⠀

This sweet little leaf cutter bee got stuck in the house overnight - found it lifeless on the window sill this morning. so we picked it, put it in the morning sun to warm up, and added a little sugar water to the tissue. the second that sugar water hit the tissue it’s little antenna went up and it started drinking. then hustling around and eventually flew off into the sun 💛🖤☀️ 🐝 💛🖤

Bees such as honey bees collect pollen on their hairy bodies, then transfer it to specially adapted hairs on their back legs called (corbiculae),known as pollen baskets.

Pollen is the currency of a beehive. 💰

while nectar provides energy, pollen provides everything else. you cannot raise bees (or any children) on sugar alone; you also need protein, fat, lipids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and trace elements. pollen contains all of these and more. 💎

without a diverse source of high-quality pollen, a colony will collapse. such a colony cannot produce healthy offspring and cannot perform the many functions necessary for day-to-day life, let alone prepare for lean times. 🥀

however, everyday life in a bee colony is fraught with lean times. pollen can become scarce during protracted wet weather, dry spells, and certainly over winter. yet a colony does not store pollen on the same scale as it stores nectar. most pollen storage is used almost as quickly as it is collected, so how does a winter colony survive? ❄

the answer lies within the winter bee! although we usually think of pollen storage as occurring in the combs surrounding the brood nest, winter storage of protein actually occurs inside the winter bee. the enlarged f*t bodies, along with enlarged hypopharyngeal glands, provide a vast storehouse for vitellogenin and other materials needed to produce brood food. 🍼

this hidden treasure is the reason a healthy colony can produce a batch of spring bees long after the last pollen flow has ceased and long before the new one begins. 🌱

The songbird goldfinch aquilegia can be over-wintered in zones 3-9, and looks great in a cottage/wooded area setting. goldfinch is a deer-resistant variety, so you don't need to worry about its creamy, buttery-colored flowers being eaten. its main blooming season is april through june, which is when you'll see the butterflies it attracts.⠀

Yesterday a report was launched charting the dramatic decline in insect numbers. loss of habitat and over-use of pesticides are two of the major causes, with 41% of insect species now facing extinction.

insects pollinate three quarters of our food crops, and are the main source of food for many birds, small mammals & fish. "if we don't stop the decline of insects there will be profound consequences for all life on earth". reducing the use of pesticides and managing farmland, woodland, urban areas & gardens in a more insect-friendly way will help to turn the tide.
i've taken the 'action for insects' pledge to provide havens for insects & wildlife in my garden. .

Milkweed appreciation post. we have around 32 species of milkweeds in arizona (give or take a couple depending on which book your reading) here is a sweet sampling of a few species all found near canelo, arizona.

1. asclepias asperula (antelope horns milkweed)
a species with odd flowers that likes open slopes and fields.
2. asclepias tuberosa orange (tuberous milkweed)
3. asclepias tuberosa yellow (tuberous milkweed) super showy and variable blooms.
4. asclepias incarnata (swamp milkweed) only known from one locality in arizona!
5. asclepias subsverticillata (horsetail milkweed) the #1 rated monarch larval host in arizona.

milkweeds are best known for their association with monarch and queen butterflies. the caterpillars of these species eat the milkweed foliage which contains cardiotoxins. these toxins are sequestered in the caterpillars and remain even after the caterpillar has become a butterfly, rendering them largely inedible to most predators. but aside from these two butterfly's species the milkweeds act as a nectar source to a variety of pollinators including other butterflies, bees, and flies. the foliage is also host to milkweed specialized aphids and beetles.
milkweeds occur in habitat from the low desert to the alpine tops of our sky islands. they are an interesting gateway into all of the other fantastic plant/pollinator relationships which make the borderlands a fascinating place to live.

The genus lonicera includes shrubs and the more commonly grown climbers known as honeysuckle.
this evergreen variety has fab black berries shown off nicely against the glossy evergreen leaves.
just don't eat them or your tonsils will leak out of your nostrils. .

The eggs, larvae and chrysalis of butterflies are sometimes attacked by parasites that disrupt their metamorphosis process. generally the intrusive species are flies or wasps that at some point in these processes lay their eggs and parasitize the host to feed on them, resulting in the birth of the parasitic insect. spooky!

los huevos, larvas y crisálidas de mariposas a veces son atacados por parásitos que interrumpen su proceso de metamorfosis. generalmente las especies intrusas son moscas o avispas que en algún momento de estos procesos depositan sus huevos y parasitan el hospedero para alimentarse de ellas, dando lugar al nacimiento del insecto parásito. ¡escalofriante!

Honeycomb • workers (sterile female honey bees) secrete wax from 4 pairs of wax glands on the underside of their abdomens. the wax is secreted as a liquid and hardens into scales upon contact with the air. a wax scale is moved to the bee’s mouth parts by special hairs on the bee's hind legs. their mandibles (similar to our jaws) knead the scale and mix it with a secretion from the mandibular glands so it becomes pliable for construction. honeycomb serves as the bees nest site. it's here where the queen lays eggs, brood is reared, pollen is stored and nectar is ripened into honey. #honeybee #wax #honeycomb #beehive #pollinators #savethebees
