& BUMBLE BEES
Contribute to Science
Bumble Bees of Wisconsin – online guide, information, and on-going research. This University of Wisconsin website is intended to help share the fascinating life history and biology of bumbles, as well as teach how to identify and conserve them here in Wisconsin. Additionally, consider getting involved in bumble bee citizen science projects to help collect vital data for scientists across the region.
WiBee – This citizen science wild bee research project was created and is managed by the Gratton Lab in the UW-Madison Department of Entomology. Growers and interested community members are invited to use the WiBee app during the growing season to collect high quality data on wild bee abundance and diversity on Wisconsin’s fruit and vegetable farms, as well as non-crop habitats. The app can also be used in your home garden, or at prairies, parks, woodlands, or anywhere else you see pollinator activity, whether or not you live in Wisconsin. All are welcome to contribute.
