Digger Bees on Mesa Peak Mtwy in Malibu Creek State Park

alt="Digger bees are ground nesting bees that look like fuzzy honeybees. Like honeybees, the males have no stinger. Males swarm over the burrows of females, waiting for them to emerge. Females can reportedly sting but in my experience are generally not aggressive. These are along the Mesa Peak Mtwy fire road in Malibu Creek State Park. May 24, 2020." border="0">
