These bees are natural builders! Stripes, spots and iridescent colors are just a few of the stunning features that decorate Leafcutter bees, or Megachilidae, a large family of solitary nesters. Most use foreign materials to build, line, partition and seal their nest cells. Many have large mandibles (jaws) that aid in nest-building tasks, such as chewing leaves and stems, and transporting pebbles to nests. While most bees carry pollen on their legs, the majority of Leafcutters have pollen-collecting structures on the underside of their abdomens. If you spot a bee with bright yellow or white pollen on her belly, you can be sure it belongs to this family. Leafcutters visit Dune sunflower (Helianthus debilis), Blanketflower (Gaillardia pulchella), Spanish needles (Bidens alba) and many other native Florida wildflower species. At first glance, gardeners may fear there’s a hungry pest in their midst, but these plant pieces are not used for food. Instead, the collected material is essentially used as a wallpaper to protect the Megachile nest cells from moisture. Once inside her nest, the bee chews the leaf’s edges until it becomes sticky enough to adhere to the cell walls. Each cell is provisioned with a mixture of pollen and nectar and partitioned with additional plant material. If you were to remove a completed nest from its cavity, it would resemble a small, leafy cigar. Leafcutters tend to nest in premade cavities in wood, such as beetle burrows, hollow stems and artificial nesting boxes. Some, however, nest in the ground or use alternative materials such as mud, sap or pebbles to line their cells. Holes cut by leafcutters rarely compromise the health of a plant, so gardeners can take pride in knowing they have pollinators nesting nearby!

This photo of a Monarch chrysalis was sent in by our customers Anne and Brad. It’s interesting that the caterpillar climbed about three feet up the stucco entranceway wall of their home to attach itself to the wall to form the chrysalis. Has anyone else noted interesting places where caterpillars go to form their chrysalis?

Have you seen me? Green Anoles are the only anole species native to Florida, but they're getting harder and harder to find what with all the competition from the hardy and prolific little brown anoles, a lookalike (and closely related) Cuban anole species, Anolis porcatus, found in south Florida and possibly spreading. Green anoles can turn brown, an ability that earned them the confusing misnomer "American chameleon" (they aren't chameleons; they're anoles!). Brown anoles cannot, however, turn green. Anoles are active by day in warm weather and often bask in vegetation, occasionally charging away from a basking spot to grab and inset or chase off a rival anole. During cool weather anoles are often found hiding under tree bark, shingles, or in rotten logs. Sometimes many anoles can be found taking refuge in one spot. Anoles eat a wide variety of insects, spiders, and other invertebrates. Anoles are generally arboreal (living in trees) but can be found almost anywhere. Anoles are commonly found in suburban or even urban areas and can often be seen perched on fences and rooftops.
