Native Bees for Pollination
August 17, 2016
MSU Extension 2016 Beginning Farmer Webinar Series "Getting started with native bees for pollination" Date: February 15, 2016
Presenter: Ben Phillips, MSU Extension educator
Native bees can be harnessed for pollination services on the farm and in the garden. Because these bees do not make honey, they do not swarm, most of them rarely sting, and do not require heavy lifting from the beekeeper. This webinar explores the possibilities and techniques for keeping solitary cavity-nesting bees, such as leafcutter bees and mason bees.
