Lydie Costes

So awful!!
Howie/Betsy
01:28:57

Beth Harris

bzznbea
01:38:39
What an amazing resource!
Devona
01:38:40
There are lots of bumbles bees and carpenter bees here where I live east of Louisburg, NC. Don't know which types.
marylynncarubba
01:41:43
What should we do (if anything) when we find a dead bee in our yard for the benefit of research?
morgansiem

:^)
Lindsay Mangas
01:44:54
Ha!
Lindsay Mangas
01:45:14
Thanks for BEEing so informative :)
lauriecousart@gmail.com
01:45:49
will they forage on hellebores in early spring
Rich Hatfield
01:45:56
Funny, I've never heard these bee puns before...
Rich Hatfield
01:46:11

Lydie Costes
01:46:17
Advice for what to plant in deer-heavy areas?
Lindsay Mangas
01:46:20
Hahaha, I'm sure ;)
ksrav
01:46:48
if I spray some plants with deterrent to keep deer from eating them, will it keep bumble bees away? (Non-toxic)
Rich Hatfield
01:47:20
That is a good question. Definitely try not to spray blooms.
ksrav
01:47:40
thanks!
Rich Hatfield
01:47:47
But spray on nonblooming plants should be fine
Dianne
01:48:01
We have a huge population of carpenter bees. Do they compete with bumble bees and impact bumble bee population? Should we try to eliminate some carpenter bees?
Rich Hatfield
01:48:13
No, carpenter bees are native too
Rich Hatfield
01:48:20
part of the system!
Beth Harris
01:48:29
I see a lot of bees on clover right now!
Dianne
01:48:30
OK, thanks...
Rich Hatfield
01:48:42
But, they can affect structures if they are nesting in your house. So beware...
Tara Moore NCWF
01:49:21
Will bee houses (with the bamboo inserts) help with the carpenter bees? What other types of bees do they support?
Rich Hatfield
01:49:53
Those provide nesting resources for mason bees and leafcutter bees
Dianne
01:49:55
I'm a member of Xerces - thanks for your work there! Great publications....
Rich Hatfield
01:50:03
Thanks, Dianne!
Tara Moore NCWF
01:50:10
Thanks Rich!
Rich Hatfield
01:50:30
Sure!
Lydie Costes
01:50:47
Advice for what to plant in deer-heavy areas?
Beth Harris
01:51:15
Will buttonbush bloom the first year or do I need to wait?
Rich Hatfield
01:51:48
I'm going to let Debbie answer some of these NC plant/deer questions
Lydie Costes
01:52:47
Thanks!
Rich Hatfield
01:52:51
Joe-pye weed is a GREAT insect plant
bzznbea
01:53:08
Love Joe-pye!
Madison
01:56:20
what makes a plant a special value? Is it because they specialize on the plant?
DAve Allison
01:56:24
The most species of bees on one plant was my Pycnanthemum virginianum. Virginia mountain mint
Beth Harris
01:58:28
I’m a honeybeekeeper - we get SO many calls for bumble bees in bird houses
Rich Hatfield
01:58:59
You can encourage people to submit nest sightings in Bumble Bee watch so we can learn more about them
Beth Harris
01:59:17
I’ll add that to our Wake Co Beeekeeper web sit!
Beth Harris
01:59:20
site
Rich Hatfield
01:59:20
I didn't show that part of BBW, but here is a link: https://www.bumblebeewatch.org/app/#/checklist/nest/add
Dianne
01:59:22
OK, will do...
ksrav
02:00:23
is there something that will attack bumble bee nests? is there some way to protect them?
Rich Hatfield
02:00:41
Ants are probably the biggest "pest"
Rich Hatfield
02:01:04
But any predator will dig them up for the larvae. Lots of protein
Howie/Betsy
02:01:24
unfortunately fire ants are now endemic here
ksrav
02:01:28
I guess the more sites available then, the better chance they have.
Rich Hatfield
02:01:32
Their stings do a pretty good job of protecting themselves from mammals
lauriecousart@gmail.com
02:01:32
good to hear i have pipelines and no caterpillars yet so will be patient
Anna Lees Cobb
02:02:26
do bumble bees need a water source
Rich Hatfield
02:02:42
No.
Rich Hatfield
02:02:56
Honey bees do to maintain honey viscosity.
ksrav
02:03:10
Could you say again the best time to mow if we mow only twice a year?
DAve Allison
02:03:13
I put a new kitchen scrubber to float on my bird bath. Bumble bees come and rest and drink.
Rich Hatfield
02:03:25
But not bumble bees (at least not regularly - not saying they never drink water
lauriecousart@gmail.com
02:03:27
when will recording be available
Dianne
02:03:37
This was great, thanks so much...
Tonya McMillan
02:03:40
What do you use for fire ants
bzznbea
02:03:53
You can add some small rocks into your birdbaths for the bees and hummingbirds.
Gini Knight
02:03:58
Wonderful information Debbie and Rich!
marylynncarubba
02:04:28
What should we do if anything, if we find a dead bee in our yards, for the benefit of research?
iPhone
02:04:36
please do more of these informative Zooms in the future.
Rich Hatfield
02:04:57
You can submit data to bumble bee watch
Rich Hatfield
02:05:06
individual dead bees may be natural
Gini Knight
02:05:16
Do you have a specific native pollinator suggestions for wet clay soils with part shade? Lobelia?
heatherb
02:05:26
Thank you, my 7-year old daughter and I learned a lot! We look forward to participating in BBW.
Rich Hatfield
02:05:32
hundreds or thousands should be reported to department of agriculture or whoever manages pesticides in your state
Madison
