Native bees for pollination

August 17, 2016 - Author: Ben Phillips

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.
