NEW: Videos in species accounts can now embed videos in its species account pages. We have added videos of Oxybelus uniglumis, showing a female around her nest burrow, then bringing in prey - a fly impaled upon its sting; and Osmia bicornis females collecting mud.


BWARS would welcome further videos ilustrating behaviour of species. Videos should be of reasonable quality. Please contact the web managers if you have material you can contribute.

Plants for Bees book published

IBRA - The International Bee Research Association has recently published Plants for Bees. Illustrated in full colour throughout, the book provides gardeners, beekeepers and bee lovers with all the information they need to create a healthy environment for the many species of bee in the British Isles.


Plants for Bees very adequately recognises the importance of all our native bee species. Many solitary as well as social species are depicted in excellent quality photographs, most of which have been contributed by BWARS members.
