I have lived in this area for many years and never noticed this type of bee. My fiance’ planted an African Blue Basil plant that is flourishing and it had a couple dozen of these bees all over it for several days. Quickly identified it through your site. Now I’m hooked on looking up the bugs we have around here. Thank you for the work you do putting this site together.

We were hoping we would find a gorgeous image of an insect we have never featured as Bug of the Month this morning, and your submission is perfect. Your enthusiasm over sighting this Metallic Green Sweat Bee is refreshing, and your image makes a gorgeous Bug of the Month for September, 2017. Metallic Green Sweat Bees seem to be attracted to purple flowers.

Metallic green sweat bee. That’s a cool name!
Found a green headed bee in my living room in Wenatchee Washington. May have come from a bouquet I bought today from local farmers market. Never seen one before. Set it free outside.
