        One of the most common native bees in my area is the sweat bee Halictus ligatus. This is a widespread species found from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, and from the Atlantic to the Pacific. This species, like others in the genus, are true sweat bees because they are attracted to sweat. Halictus nest in flat ground in what may best be described. The bee-eater, Merops apiaster, specialises in feeding on bees; here a male catches a nuptial gift for his mate. Vertebrate predators of bees include bee-eaters, shrikes and flycatchers, which make short sallies to catch insects in flight. Swifts and swallows fly almost continually, catching insects as they : Insecta.

The bee Halictus rubicundus is a widespread native of North America (Soucy ) and Europe (Potts and Willmer ), where it can be common in both wildlands as well as more anthropogenic settings (e.g., roadsides, cities, gardens).Like most other Halictus species (Michener ), it is a primitively eusocial bee; each colony is founded in the spring by a single Cited by: 7.

Generic Diagnosis Members of the genus Halictus are easily differentiated from those of the closely related Lasioglossum by the presence of pale fasciae, or hair bands, on the posterior margins of the metasomal terga of Halictus species (Figs. 17, 18). The northwestern species of Halictus are largely black or brown-black, sometimes with faint metallic tints (subgenus Seladonia).

Leafcutter Bees - Megachile A genus of bulky looking bees, all of which make nest chambers for their young using bits of leaf cut from plants. Roses are a particular favourite, and a rose bush with semicircular pieces missing from the edges of its leaves is a good sign that one of these bees is around.

Halictus and the closely related genera Lasioglossum and Agapostemon are all called “sweat bees” because they are attracted to human sweat and drink it for its salt content. There is one species in California, Halictus harmonius, which is listed on the Xerces Society’s Red list of endangered insects.

Author: Jan Bezděk. Native bees (Hymenoptera: Anthophila) were sampled using bee bowls in two states to determine biodiversity in commercial cotton fields of the southern United States.

In both states, native bee communities found in cotton fields were dominated by generalist pollinators in the genera Agapostemon, Augochloropsis, Halictus, and Lasioglossum (Hymenoptera: Halictidae), and Melissodes.

For a revision of the subgenera Patellapis (s. str.), P. (Chaetalictus) and P. (Lomatalictus) of the bee genus Patellapis Friese about specimens of more than 70 species were studied.

We found that the original diagnoses of the subgenera based on a relatively small number of specimens and species are insufficient and need to be revised. The existence of intermediate species showing a Cited by: 1.
