Everything connected to growing blueberries

Honeybees like….Pacific Crabapple

Posted by blueberrytalk on April 17, 2016

The Mason bee is gathering pollen from Bluecrop blossoms. Once the Mason bees are locked on to the blueberry blossoms they tend to stick with the blueberries even if a crabapple is growing right next to their nest shelter. Honeybees, on the other hand, gladly forsake the blueberries for the much preferred crabapple blossoms. You can hear the buzz of the bees as you approach a crabapple tree. The honeybees are gathering pollen and nectar from the crabapple blossoms. The Pacific crabapple is a native tree so you can expect to find numerous crabapple trees in any wooded area.
