Solitary Bees and Wasps Workshop 2014


22 March 2014 10:00 - 16:00

Location: Chilcomb House, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 8RD, UK.

Event description

There are over 300 species of solitary bee and wasp in Britain, all have fascinating life cycles and fulfil an important role as predators and pollinators. This workshop will look at how to separate solitary bees and wasps from similar-looking insects and how to identify them to family level. The day is designed to act as springboard to more detailed identification at species level. We will also explore their life cycles and how to provide nesting habitat for a range of species in our gardens.

The day is suitable for anyone aged 18 and over and will include various talks and demonstrations by the leaders using illustrated talks, microscopes and museum specimens. However, the emphasis for the day is very much on participants having a go themselves at identifying actual specimens using the microscopes and identification keys provided.

Cost: £15.00 (to include tea/coffee; participants to provide their own packed lunch).

Prior booking essential (numbers limited to 20).
