Male C. pallida are able detect the pheromones which females release and use them to locate female burrows. When a virgin female is about to emerge from her burrow, she releases a scent that wafts up through the soil and is detected by the antenna of the males. This has led to males developing a very acute olfactory sense. Freshly-killed females have been buried to test whether sound also plays a part in male signaling. In these tests, male bees still dug up the dead females, proving that pheromone signaling is the only pathway. Males have also been observed to dig up other males. This shows that males and virgin females give off similar pheromones. Oddly, males also sometimes dig up other digger bee species. It is currently unknown why this occurs.[6]
Centris pallida are located in dry, hot environments of North America. Specifically, they are in Arizona, Nevada, southern California, New Mexico, and western Mexico.[4] They are a very common bee (especially in Arizona), and are thus classified as Least Concern in terms of conservation.[5] The fur and dark colored exoskeleton allow the bees to survive the cold nights in the desert. During the daytime, C. pallida are almost completely inactive, hiding in shade or in burrows to prevent overheating.[6]

D'autres thèmes ont été abordés dans ce débat qui a duré près de 75 minutes. La CAQ propose de rendre admissibles les logements locatifs aux subventions de RénoVert, qui deviendrait un programme permanent. Le PLQ se limiterait à élargir son admissibilité aux propriétaires-occupants de plex, soit les immeubles de deux à cinq logements. Le PQ ajouterait 40 millions en quatre ans à l'enveloppe de RénoVert pour le logement locatif.
