We’ve just launched the WiBee Data Dashboard! Explore the bee abundance data collected this year by WiBee App users from across Wisconsin: www.data-viz.it.wisc.edu/wibee. (Note: this dashboard is a work in progress)
The weather is warm and Wisconsin’s native, wild bees are busy foraging for pollen and nectar on blooming flowers. Use The WiBee App to observe and record bees visiting blooming flowers on your farm or property. To capture accurate data on your bee community, we suggest you complete multiple surveys across multiple days.
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 citizen scientists 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.
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.
