Funny bee stories

todancewithwolves(Z9 CA)June 29, 2009

Two carpenter bee's claimed my wisteria as their territory. Every time I went near the wisteria both came out of nowhere to check me out. They both buzzed around me until I left. Everyday they did the same thing. Poor mailman had to walk through the arbor where the wisteria grew everyday with these two standing guard. Now that the flowers are spent they've claimed the honeysuckle. It just cracks me up. Behavior very much like a hummingbird - very territorial.

Do you have any funny stories to share?
