Native Stingless Bees, Native Solitary Bees, and Pollinator Plants for Sydney

Native Stingless Bees

I have put a few links together so you too can get excited and learn a bit more about Australian native stingless bees, native solitary bees, and beneficial plants to plant.  This means you can get started on attracting native pollinators to your garden space, be it a balcony, a few pots in a courtyard, or in a garden.

  1. Plant herbs and let them go to flower to attract pollinators.
