Yes, this is possible. A second generation of leafcutter bees can occur within one season, generally taking place when early emergence of the first generation occurs and the weather remains warm for a prolonged period of time. Second generation bees tend to be slightly smaller, and have a greater tendency to migrate away from the nesting house. Do not fear if this happens as the leafcutter bees may then return back the following season as they are aware of a safe habitat to continue nesting.
