Re: Wisteria Blossoms & Bumble Bees

The bee is a carpenter bee.  You can tell that's it is a male by the yellow spot between its mandibles.  Females don't have that spot on their faces.  The males are harmless; they don't have a stinger, but the females do.  If you see lots of them around, you might want to check your house for an infestation.  Carpenter bees attract wood peckers.
