Meet the Mason, Leafcutter, and Alkali Bees

Did you know that for over 9,000 years, humans have been collecting wild bees’ nests? Eventually, they figured out how to raise wild bee species. Bees raised by humans are called managed bees. 

In our fourth video, we will meet three managed bees that help farmers produce healthy foods we eat: the Mason, the Leafcutter, and the Alkali Bees.  

As we finish up our tour of the bees in Oregon, I will also share what you can do to help bees.
