zen-industrial Alternatively these creations by Greg Corman of Zen Industrial in Tucson, Arizona are created from salvaged materials. Greg uses his scuplture to provide habitats for native, stingless bees (not honeybees).
Blue-banded bees (Amegilla cingulata) are native to Australia, but also occur naturally in Papua New Guinea, East Timor, Indonesia and Malaysia. Unlike other bee species, blue-banded bees are solitary insects. They typically build nests in sandstone, mud or the mortar-gaps in the brickwork of houses.
These super cute bee finger puppets are perfect for a spring or summer kids craft or when learning about bees or insects. Try making it as a book extension with a favorite children's book with a bee character.
