Striped Sweat Bees on Blue Aster

45381 views Sadik Kassam September 15, 2020 Ottawa, ON Date shot: September 15, 2020

Adults drink flower nectar and eat pollen, and are not aggressive. They will sting in self-defense, however, if they are hit or almost crushed. Sweat Bees sometimes get close to, or touch parts of, the body that are perspiring. They seem to enjoy drinking the salty liquid off of our skin. Some are so small and lightweight, they are able to do so without the person even realizing it!
