Master Gardener July 13th, 2021: What Bees Are These?
Time & Location
About the Event
Prescott Valley Public Library will be hosting the pre-recorded presentation of July 13th, 2021 @ 4:00 pm Master Gardener: What Bees Are These? Incorporating Wild Bees in Our Gardens and Landscapes
There are 1,100 native species of Arizona bees with lifestyles that are very different from honeybees. Understanding them can help us find ways to tweak our garden, landscaping, and farming practices to be more inclusive and supportive of wild bees, many that are 90% better pollinators than our honeybees or specialize on specific native plants.
Tips on identifying them, delineating them from flies and wasps, providing suitable habitat and food sources will be discussed, as well as, how mulching, tilling, winter clean up, and other common garden practices destroy native bee habitats. Learn what you can do to enhance survival of these vital creatures while contributing to citizen science bee projects.
Presenter: Dianne Kadonaga, Master Gardener
