Bees In Argentina Are Building Nests Using Plastic Waste

Researchers have found that wild bees in Argentina are building their nests using strange materials. The insects have been building nests made entirely of plastic waste.

Study researcher Mariana Allasino, from the Argentina’s National Agricultural Technology Institute, and colleagues set wild bee “hotels.” These are structures with long and hollow tubes, which bees can fill with any material they like to build nest for their young.

These bees normally create their nests using leaves, mud, stones, tree resin, petals, and whatever they can scavenge.
