  1. Provide artificial nest sites for solitary bees

    From January 1990 to May 1991, the orchid bee Euglossa atrovenata made 60 nests in 50 wooden boxes placed on a table (1 m above the ground) in secondary forest planted with coffee crops, at Unión Juárez Chiapas, Mexico (Rami­rez-Arriaga et al. 1996). The nests were made on the internal floor and walls of the boxes, constructed with resin.

  2. Provide artificial nest sites for solitary bees

    In January 1990, 22% of nests of the orchid bee Euglossa atrovenata in wooden boxes were parasitized by the Megachilid brood parasite Coelioxys costaricensis, in secondary forest planted with coffee crops, at Union Juarez Chiapas, Mexico (Ramirez-Arriaga et al. 1996).
