    Bees are so cool! very neat pictures. With all the fruit AG were I live theres so many bees this time a year. In my yard theres a bush that flowers and lures them in by the dozens. Sometimes also if I leave my garage open (which I do a lot to vent the A/C) I'll see a couple trying to get into my HL chamber. I assume they are trying to get in because they smell nectar?

    Is there a way to tell "wild" bees from kept bees? sometimes I do feed my neps bees if I catch a random one near the chamber, but maybe I shouldn't if they belong to someone.

    They belong to the rest of us. Without bees we all starve. Shame on you.

    I agree. Bees already have it hard enough as it is.

    I'm sure the literary 2-3 bees a year I have fed to HL neps plants is going to MUCH less damage to the bee population then those of you growing your Sarracenia and fly traps out in your yards...

    But i'll stop if its truly an issue
