Australia is such a large continent with hot and balmy tropical rainforests in the north, snow-capped mountains in the south and hot and arid deserts in the centre. Native bees can be found in most of Australia's diverse habitats with swarms teeming through the carpets of flowers in the heathlands or buzzing happily around the blossoms at the tops of gum trees. Some species of native bees even burrow deep into the desert sands, while others nest inside bedraggled trees close to remote water holes. With more than 1700 'true blue' Australian native bees and eleven species of small black stingless bees, do you know which ones can be found in your area?
