Summer Leafcutter bees are great pollinators when temperatures are above 20C/70F. Leafcutter bee cocoons come in packets of 25+ cocoons.
They pollinate summer flowers including various vegetable crops such as tomatoes, squash and herbs.
Leafcutter bees use tiny pieces of leaves and flower petals to surround their offspring and provide protection against predatory insects. They are solitary bees that use nesting tunnels for producing next year’s offspring.
