Miner Bees

Most people think that bees create nests made of paper or live in hollowed out tree trunks. What they probably won’t know is that actually a majority of species of bees dig out underground nests. Each queen will dig her own nest and many nests can be found in relatively close proximity to each other. Unlike honeybees, which contain hundreds upon hundreds of individuals in a single colony, the miner bee has a much smaller population due to limited space underground.
