2020 was our first full year of the Bees@Schools program. We received 170 successfully installed nest boxes at the end of the summer, and got to work processing them following the protocols we developed in 2019.

The program had its fair share of obstacles which delayed getting results out, but despite a pandemic shutting down our lab for months, we are pleased to present our 2020 results!

The document below outlines a bit of background on the program as well as some general information about the types of insects present. Then, there is a list of each occupied nest box and all insect species found. Check it out!
