The bee that eats wood

Except it doesn’t. Carpenter bees, of which there are 500 species worldwide, are so-called because they make their nests in burrows in dead wood, bamboo or structural timber. They are large, very buzzy, and a high gloss bluey-black [at least the ones we see in the valley are]. They are rather beautiful… and they love rosemary, of which we have hundreds of plants. carpenter bee on rosemary 14-4-155 to remember
