While the wild bees are overwintering in their nests, we’ve been busy analyzing the 1000+ bee surveys our participants submitted in 2020 and making plans for the 2021 season! More info coming soon about upcoming spring webinars about bees and improvements to the program and the WiBee App for 2021.
What is The WiBee App?
WiBee (pronounced Wee-bee) is a new smartphone app developed by the Gratton Lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We invite growers and interested community members to use the app during the growing season to collect high quality data on wild bee abundance and diversity on Wisconsin’s fruit and vegetable farms, as well as non-crop habitats.
With your help, we can provide growers with better pollination management recommendations specific to individual farms and share more information about the diversity, abundance and value of Wisconsin’s wild bees.
