Look Out for the Ivy Bee! Nature For November 1

Look Out for the Ivy Bee! - Nature For November 1

12 years ago, in a place named Langton Matravers, the Ivy Bee first appeared in Britain. This tiny critter came over the channel all by itself (no planes or boats at all!) And is helping the environment by helping pollinate ivy, a favorite shelter for many bugs and food for many things as well. It looks slightly like a wasp but is far more fury and about the size of a honey bee. It is most active in autumn (September-November) unlike most bees who are more active in the summer. Lots of people think that ivy is nuisance but this fury friend may be an excuse not to get the clippers out!
