Produced in partnership with Buglife, this 8-page Field Studies Council chart shows 28 species of bee, most of which can commonly be seen flying in domestic gardens. As well as 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, with 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 full-colour laminated chart is designed for use outside. Clear colour illustrations and text by experts in the subject help you make a positive identification quickly and are a valuable resource for all age groups. Small enough to take into the field - charts fold to B5 size (approx. 24 x 18 cm). They are fully splash-proof with the ability to wipe it clean.
