Join TWA and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension for the next
Wildlife for Lunch webinar!
When: Thursday, October 15th, 2015, from noon to 1:00 pm CST
Presented by: Dr. Ben Hutchins
Topic: Managing for Pollinators - Bees in Texas
Pollinating insects are incredibly important for the ecological and economic well-being of Texas. The bulk of animal-mediated pollination is carried out by bees, but numerous threats have adversely impacted populations of both native and non-native bee species. However, management practices based on an understanding of basic bee biology can have a positive impact on native-bee populations in Texas. Native Texas bee species, their habitat, and ecological requirements are briefly introduced. General land management practices that benefit native-pollinators are discussed, emphasizing activities that augment food and nesting resources. Texas Parks and Wildlife encourages interested individuals to document native bees through the free smart-phone iNaturalist app. This tool is also useful for aiding in the identification of bee species.
