Ants, Bees and Wasps
DID YOU KNOW?
The question that began Patio Life, “Why does the wasp keeping landing on the chair?”
The answer: the wasp gathers fibers from dead wood and plant stems, or in this case, the wood pulp from the teak chair, which it will mix with saliva, and use to construct their nests.
The black and blue salvia is by far the most popular plant on the patio and attracts honey bees, green bees, bumble bees, sweat bees, carpenter bees, hummingbirds and butterflies.
Order: Ants, Bees, Wasps and Sawflies (Hymenoptera)
