Sedgemoor District Council is aware of a colony of masonry bees in the sand of the play area at Apex Park. The advice is to leave them alone; they do not sting. The area will be fenced off.
Masonry bees pollinate many different types of plants and their burrowing does not harm vegetation. They are non-aggressive. Most are active a very short time. After about four-to-six weeks of activity, they disappear for another year.
