Native Bees of the Western United States Flashcards
Did you know there are close to 3,000 species of bees endemic to Western North America?
Most people know relatively little about native bees considering how important they are to the pollination of native flowers and agricultural crops. To save the native bees we must first get to know them. These flashcards are a great place to start!
The purpose of this deck is to assist in the understanding and appreciation of these wonderful creatures. These flashcards provide easy access to information useful whether you are just starting or have years of knowledge.
Each card features a colorful photo of the male, queen, foundress, worker, or variant of forty-two of the most commonly encountered species in the Western United States. Learn scientific and common names, taxonomy, habitat information, forewing venation, sociality, and more.
Nearly all native bee research currently involves lethal sampling of specimens in order to verify species ID later. No bees were harmed in the making of this deck.
