Abstract:

Blue banded bees are solitary bees which are characterized by their glittering blue color bands on their abdomen. They construct their nests and brood cells for their young ones in soils. The developmental biology of blue banded bees is maximum sixty days and varied according to climatic conditions. They are polylectic and wild pollinators playing major role in crop pollination. Research on blue banded bees is very limited and less studies. In this review we will focus on diversity, bio-ecology and behavior of blue banded bees.
