Bee Watching for Beginners

Instructor: Christine Casey, Ph.D., UC Davis Department of Entomology and Nematology

Location: Harry H. Laidlaw, Jr. Honey Bee Research Facility and Häagen-Dazs Honey Bee Haven

Time of Event: 12pm to 3pm

Date of Event: April 6, 2019.

Observing and identifying the bees in our gardens can be challenging. We’ll start with an overview of bee anatomy and learn how to distinguish bees from other insects. We’ll then look at key features of common bees that can be used to identify them in flight. The class will finish in the Haven for hands-on experience observing and identifying bees. Photography encouraged!
