Produced in conjunction with the invertebrate conservation charity Bug life, this much requested new 8-page chart shows 28 species of bee. Most of which can be commonly found flying in domestic gardens.
The ‘Big Six’ bumblebees, the chart includes representatives of mining bees, cavity-nesting bees and cuckoo bees. Silhouettes next to each image show the typical life-size for each species. Text on the reverse side includes a table, full cross-referencing to the images, which gives further information on flight periods, distribution of each species in Britain, and useful pointers to help distinguish between similar-looking species.
This chart is part of the FSC’s range of fold-out charts, designed to help users identify a wide range of plants and animals. Clear colour illustrations and text by experts in the subject make these valuable resources for all age groups. Each chart is laminated to make it shower-proof and robust for use outdoors. The definitive guide helps identify some of the main species of social and solitary bees in the UK.
