By latest count, about 250 species of native bees are known to nest in sidewalk cracks,
traffic median strips, parks,
and high-rise balcony flower pots—more perhaps than any other major city in the world,
several entomologists said. In Prospect Park alone, at least 90 species of native bees
flit from flower to flower among the park's sun-dappled golden rod, dandelions and dogwood.
I am so going to be looking for bee nests in sidewalk cracks this summer.
