Native Bee Series: Leafcutting Bees — Planet Bee Foundation

The leafcutting bee is responsible for building a “nursery” for her larvae
in tubular cavities. She lines the hole with leaves and petals to create a

due to extra muscles to help them chew through leaves. They are one of the
best pollinators because the pollen on their abdomen falls off easily and
pollinates plants.
