We studied the community ecology of trap-nesting bees in two forest fragments of the state of São Paulo, Brazil, during two years, utilizing bamboo canes and tubes made of black cardboard as trap nests. The traps were inspected once a month with an otoscope. One hundred and fifteen nests were obtained at Estação Ecológica de Paulo de Faria, Paulo de Faria (EEPF).
