Bee Huts

Some bee huts located south of Bow Island, Alberta.
Bee huts are used to protect leaf cutter bees from the
harmful rays of the summer sun.

Leaf cutter bees help to pollinate alfalfa and canola
crops in the prairies.

  1. Cool! I don't think I ever seen a bee hut. I bet now that I have seen this post I will see bee huts soon...always seems to go like that.

    1. Yes it does, Jenn. I see more of them each year. There are lots of them in the Taber area this year.
