Bees - not wasps - at Apex Park

Sedgemoor District Council is aware of a colony of masonry bees in the sand of the play area at Apex Park.  The advice is to leave them alone; they do not sting.  The area will be fenced off.

Masonry bees pollinate many different types of plants and their burrowing does not harm vegetation.    They are non-aggressive.    Most are active a very short time. After about four-to-six weeks of activity, they disappear for another year.
