    About This Project

    Is a recently introduced invasive species, the European wool-carder bee, threatening our native bumble bees?

    Male wool-carder bees use evolved weapons on the base of their abdomen to ram into bumble bees trying to gain access to flowers. This project will determine if these interactions are hurting bumble bee lifetime reproductive success.

    Blast off!
