Are they aggressive, do they sting?

When it comes to bees, there's a common misconception that all buzzing insects are aggressive. But let's set the record straight about our gentle wild solitary bees!

Unlike some social bees, such as honey bees, wild solitary bees are non-aggressive by nature. They go about their business peacefully, focusing on their essential tasks of collecting nectar and pollen and nesting. They are not interested in stinging humans unless directly threatened or provoked, which rarely occurs.

Solitary bees, true to their name, live independently or in small communities, unlike honey bees that reside in large colonies. They don't have a hive or stored honey to protect, reducing the need for aggressive defensive behaviors. Instead, they channel their energy into efficient pollination, benefiting our gardens and ecosystems.

At Bee Address, we celebrate the gentle nature of wild solitary bees and encourage everyone to embrace their presence. By understanding and respecting these magnificent creatures, we can foster harmony and coexistence. Let's dispel the misconception and appreciate the vital role that peaceful solitary bees play in our natural world!
