Habropoda laboriosa (Southeastern blueberry bee, 0110345459) (ASM126327v1)

About Habropoda laboriosa

Habropoda laboriosa, the southeastern blueberry bee, is a bee in the family Apidae. It is native to the southeastern United States. It is regarded as the most efficient pollinator of southern rabbiteye blueberries, because the flowers require buzz pollination, and H. laboriosa is one of the few bees that exhibit this behavior. It is active for only a few weeks of the year, while the blueberries are in flower during early spring, when the temperature is warm and humid. H. laboriosa are solitary bees that live alone but nest in close proximity with other nests of their species. They have similar features to bumble bees, but they are smaller in size compared to them. H. laboriosa are arthropods so they have segmented bodies that are composed of the head, thorax, and abdomen.
