Results are in from one of the most significant studies ever completed on Delaware’s bees. From 2018-2019, Mt. Cuba Center partnered with Matthew J. Sarver of Sarver Ecological to scientifically measure which species of bees were attracted to our gardens and natural lands to better aid in bee conservation. This study of Mt. Cuba’s gardens and outlying natural lands documented 3,493 individual bees of 135 species during 2018-19. Due to the diverse and special nature of Mt. Cuba, as well as the fact that Delaware has generally been under sampled for bees, this project represents one of the most important bodies of information ever compiled for Delaware’s bees.
