Wild bee on a flower.The journal Environmental Entomology has published a series of papers exploring pesticide exposure in non-honey bees.

Honey bees are widely known and receive a lot of attention and research, but there are thousands of additional species of bees (such as bumble bees, leafcutter bees, sweat bees, stingless bees) that are less well known or researched.

To begin assessing the effects of pesticide exposure on these thousands of additional species of bees, a group of experts in non-honey bees came together and produced papers on the following topics.

All of the papers are freely available for download. To see Entomology Today’s blog post about this workshop, see Why Pesticides Pose Different Kinds of Risk to Non-Honey Bees.
