There’s a difference between a carpenter and a normal bee

My dad has a garden that he plants in his backyard every year, however he grows lots of peppers, tomatoes, squash, as well as several purple veggies; I like it when his garden is filled with veggies because I always get a large bag of goodies each year! Last year, I had tomatoes, tomatos, peppers, as well as purple beans, the veggies are so much better than the a singles that I buy in the store, then anyway, our mom cares about to go into the garden to option veggies every day.

  • However, she does not like bugs, especially the a singles that can fly, but one afternoon, I was on the cellphone with her, and she refused to option some tomatoes because there were some random pollinator flying around in the garden; She had no method what it was, so I asked her to take a picture and send it to me.

When she did, I thought it was a bumble bee because of the size. However, it didn’t resemble the regular bumble bee that I was used to seeing. It lacked the redish stripe of a normal bumble bee. In fact, the bee in the picture was mostly black; But our mom kept insisting that it wasn’t a bumble bee, and to our surprise she was right. After a quick search on the internet, I discovered that it was a carpenter bee. They are a distant cousin of the bumblebee however are an genuinely weird species. One of the main distinctions between a carpenter and a bumble bee is that the carpenter bee has no hair on its abdomen. I l earned something new that day because I had no method that the carpenter bee even existed.
