Long Island’s bee ranchers

Southold beekeeper Laura Klahre raises and uses mason bees -- one of 450 wild bee species in New York State and one of more than 4,000 nationally. Not as well known as honeybees and bumblebees, the little blue bees that are native to America live solitary lives in single tubes that they seal with mud, like cement masons. Hence their name.
