small dark bee on tomato flowerWiBee Tomato Blast starts today! The goal: Lots of surveys, all over Wisconsin, over the next 2 weeks.  We encourage everyone to send in 3 surveys in 1 day on your local tomato plants. If you can, do this for 3 days over the next week. This way, all of us together can really put the power of WiBee to use.

Mellons, cucumber, pumpkins, squash, zucchini are all blooming or will be shortly. These crops are highly pollinator dependent -See our latest newsletter on the Project Updates page.

Wildflowers are plentiful, we are seeing lots of wild bees and bumblebees visits in on your surveys! Thank you!

We’ve created a Frequently Asked Questions page and will add to it as we receive questions from you.
