Hello

I am new to the forum and would be grateful if anyone can tell me if Nomada bees visit flowers for nectar and pollen, I know that they don't have any scopaand do not need to feed young but what do the adults feed on

Thank you in advance

Nomada, and other cuckoo bees, visit flowers to take nectar as food for themselves. They do not collect the pollen.
