Florida's Native Bees and Wasps

Florida's Native Bees and Wasps

America's native bees and wasps are finally getting the attention they have long deserved- they have been pollinating our crops and gardens for eons- and doing it better, faster, and more efficiently than the imported european honeybee! Florida has some incredible wasps and native bees- we just need to stop and pay attention to them. Don't worry- most of them are not aggressive unless deliberately harrassed. (Only the yellow-jackets and bald-faced hornets are undeniably hot-headed!) So, keep your eyes open, and your camera in hand, keep a cool head, and get some fantastic photos of our amazing wasps and bees! Sign in to join mission
