Today we're stripping leafcutter bee larvae from their nests.
The stripping machine pushes the larvae from their nests into a container.
Then they're boxed up, and kept for incubation in spring!
Why do we do this? Here's some quick reasons: 1) Leafcutters are great pollinators; 2) this is a very sustainable approach to agriculture; 3) alfalfa fixes nitrogen; 4) when you're only harvesting such a small-sized seed, a very high percentage of organic matter is returned to the soil.
