  • The Honey Bees are loving the Japanese Pagoda Tree lately.

“Native bees and wasps and some flies can look superficially similar to honey bees. The only native bees to form large social hives are the stingless bees (Tetragonula and Austroplebia). These bees are very dark coloured, and are much smaller than honey bees (less than 5mm long), and do not sting. Other solitary native bees and wasps may look like honey bees, but are not aggressive, and do not have a barbed sting. Some flies are excellent mimics of honey bees, but have only one pair of wings and not sting.” - Courtesy of the Australian Museum website.
