Harvesting Invasive Phragmite for bee box filler.

Yesterday morning we harvested some invasive phragmites along Cootes Drive with a LOT of help from some dedicated volunteers! A HUGE thanks to them!
We are using the phrag as bee box filler for our native, solitary bees who lay their eggs in hollow stalks for the winter. Neat, eh?
Here's a photo of our harvest.
