California Bee Publication Now Available
The University of California Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources recently released a new guide entitled, “Common Bees in California Gardens” that may be of interest to California avocado growers. The guide consists of spiral-bound pocket-sized cards printed on sturdy, laminated paper — designed for use in the field. The cards will help growers identify the most common bees and provides information concerning their appearance, distribution, flight season, nesting habits, preferred floral hosts and how they transport pollen.
The guide is available for purchase ($15) online.
