Sweat bees also do not act aggressively. They are between ¼ to ¾ inch in length and can have a bright, dark, or metallic body coloring. They get their unusual name because they are attracted to human perspiration. They form their nests in sunny spots, with compact soil, and are not covered in vegetation.
