The Neon Cuckoo Bee is one of Australia's most magnificently coloured bees! But it’s always the pretty ones you have to watch out for.
Neon Cuckoo Bees are a very sneaky species as they do not build their own nests but use the nests of other bees. While one bee is busy preparing food to fill their nest ready for their new baby, the Neon Cuckoo bee sneaks in and lays their own egg. The Neon Cuckoo bee will hatch first and eat all the provisions leaving the remaining egg with no food.
