The Andrena miwaukeenensis is one of our most colourful spring solitary bees. This bee nests in the ground, and visits many early flowering trees and flowers. Interestingly, the western form of this species has much more red hair covering the abdomen; in eastern Canada, the abdomen is mostly black.
