I live down in tampa and have seen something like this but had no idea what they were. Reply Survival Gardener, AKA David the Good November 13, 2013 - 11:26 pm Good question. This is some kind of solitary bee but I can't nail down the species. They make nests in holes where they lay their eggs on insects they hunt for their babies. They're good pollinators as well as being pest removers. Reply Uncle Tony November 14, 2013 - 1:20 am The picture won't display for me but it's probably one of several species of halictid bees. On of the most beautiful hovering insects. Old wooden wire spools of varying sizes make good homes for them but like most wildlife, they choose where they live with no apperant ( to humans) rhyme nor reason.
