Pollinators, especially bees, are known for providing valuable ecosystem and agricultural services. Although the honey bee is gaining recognition for its vital role in our agricultural systems, the United States is home to more than 3600 different bee species, most of which are native. These native bees are continuing to decline as a result of habitat loss, inadequate food availability, improper management practices, pests/diseases, and more!
Urban areas provide unique challenges and opportunities when it comes to enhancing pollinator resources and habitat. This talk will outline a variety of best practices for native bee conservation in urban and suburban areas.
