Despite their critical roles in agriculture and natural ecosystems, bumblebees have gone virtually unstudied in Texas. There is a real need to evaluate the status of these insects in our state to assess how their populations are faring and if conservation actions are needed. A first step in this process is simply recording where species are today and if they still occur in the same places they did years ago. Contribute to this process by photographing bumblebees, recording date and location, and submitting the photo online. Visit Bumblebee Watch to learn more about this endeavor and how you can contribute. Report as FR: Insect Life and specify Bumblebee Watch and location in the description.
