"Bees, wasps and ants are among the most important animals on the planet and are essential for the health and survival of countless other species - ourselves included. If you want to learn about them, the new BWARS website is a fantastic, authoritative and accessible on-line resource. We ignore these fascinating and indispensable creatures at our peril."
There is a page for each British and Irish species of bee, wasp and ant. Eventually these pages will include a detailed account for each species, with distribution maps, photos, life history, conservation status and identification tips.
You can find species accounts in three ways
