BeeSpotter is a partnership between citizen-scientists and the professional science community designed to educate the public about pollinators by engaging them in a data collection effort of importance to the nation. It is a web-based portal at the University of Illinois for learning about honey bees and bumble bees and for contributing data to a nationwide effort to collect baseline information on population status of these insects.
A couple of notes for those who are new to the BeeSpotter website:
- We are currently only collecting Bee Spottings in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Ohio, but hope to eventually expand to other states as well!
- Please be sure to post at least one photo with each submission! The expert identifier cannot respond to any ID request that does not have a photo.
