Thank you to Tracy Zarrillo of the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, and all of the members who participated in the Bombus workshop for our March 2014 meeting. We had a wonderful time and learned a lot – it was great to have the specimens alongside the identification guides.
Extra materials from the workshop will be available for members to pick up at the next two meetings, including an info packet on how to plant your garden to attract bees.
Tracy has also graciously allowed us to provide this identification guide PDF to all the Bombus species of Connecticut. Click the following link to download: CT Bombus Guide
If you have ideas for an identification workshop for next year, please let us know!
