Solitary Bees: Introduction to Identification and Nesting Ecology


11 June 2020 14:30 - 15:45

Location: Online

Event description

Free online event, booking required, donations welcome. We will have Aaron Bhambra joining us in this VMU.  Aaron currently works as a trainee with the Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trust and also conducts research as a pollinator specialist on behalf of the British Entomological Society and the Peoples Trust for Endangered Species. With around 250 bee species in the UK, solitary Bees are pretty ubiquitous and abundant animals. The trouble lies in knowing a Miner from a Mason, a Furrow from a Nomad and all the other fascinating varieties we see in our parks and gardens. This talk aims to teach you some simple observational tips on how to identify common species and explain the varied nesting ecologies of the world's most important insects.
