Many naturalists know a honey bee when they see one, but how about the other 400+ species of bees that call Ohio home? This program will focus on some of the most common bees, including their fascinating biology and life histories. Why do bumblebees vibrate their wing muscles to the tone of a middle C? How uncommon are queens in the bee world? Why do leafcutting bees cut discs from leaves and petals? And how important are these native bees to pollination and biodiversity?

Speaker: Denise Ellsworth, Program Director - Pollinator Education
