Leafcutter bees --- info please?!
Well, as I still have my own problems with Carpenter Bees (different post), now I have new nuisance. I was painting the fascia a couple weeks ago and noticed a small insect fly right into an old nail hole beside me. My first thought was, 'OMG, we have flying termites.' I know--- irrational, but it was my first thought.
I have since been told that this was a leafcutter bee. They often chew round holes out of rose leaves and use them to make a nest in existing holes in houses. The holes can be in any kind of surface. In my case, I came across 3 different ones, of which one was painted wood, one was unpainted and the last was stucco!
Does anyone know more about these? I tried finding info and didn't come up with much.
