“I like the joke on the bumblebee;
His wings are too small to hold him.
He really can’t fly, professors agree
But nobody ever told him.”

Bee Basics (from Bug Girl’s Blog)
"A beautiful publication was recently released by the USDA Forest Service and the Pollinator Partnership: Bee Basics: An Introduction to Our Native Bees by Beatriz Moisset and Stephen Buchmann.

“The full-color 40 page booklet is jam-packed with  information about how representative bees of 3,500 species inhabiting  the US and bordering areas make a living, which flowers they visit,  whether they nest underground or in hollow stems or wood. The diversity  of bees is examined along with notes on their wasp ancestry. The lives  of leafcutter, mason, bumble bees, miners and others is explored…. Tips  for easy things gardeners, home owners and naturalists can do to protect  and conserve bees and their flowers are given. “

It is about as nice an introduction to basic bee biology as you could  ask for, with the bonus of beautiful artwork.  If you haven’t  downloaded your free copy of the PDF, get with the clicking!!”
