Bees provide essential ecosystem services in natural and agricultural landscapes as pollinators of three-quarters of flowering plants and as soil-builders. For people, this means every third bite of food along with fibers, nutrients and beverages is the result of pollination. Plants rely on pollinators to reproduce and set seed. Honey bees pollinate crops, but native bees also have a role in agriculture and they are essential for pollination in natural landscapes. There are 1,300 native species of ground-nesting, twig-nesting and parasitic bees found within Arizona. This guide gives information for identifying 10 major groups of bees commonly observed in Arizona including key characters, sizes (in mm), nesting habits, floral preferences, and distinctive behaviors.
