BWARS forum - first, please read this

This forum is a place to discuss matters related to BWARS and general matters related to aculeates.


It is not intended as a forum for identification queries. We may add this feature in due course, but meanwhile, if you need help identifying bees, wasps and ants, please use either iSpot or the BWARS forum on Yahoo.



bees in furniture

I hope someone can help but I have very little information.

A small bee has laid eggs in the holes in my Ikea wooden furniture. I only saw it very briefly so I can't really describe what sort of bee it is but about 12 holes seem to be filled in with something.


Bare soil

In the book "bees of Surrey" it is suggested to have some bare soil in the garden for solitary bees to nest.

How can we do this without disturbing the soil so much that they cannot settle?


BWARS Maps and Species Concepts

There have been quite a few developments in how BWARS deals with species - primarily moving to a species concept basis. Simply put, this relates the interpretation of a name to a publication, which in turn relates to the type specimen. A more complete illustration can be found in the downloads on this page.
