Befriending Bumble Bees

Bumble bees are formidable pollinators of tomatoes, cranberries, blueberries and squash, and native wildflowers. University of Minnesota Extension has published Befriending Bumble Bees: A practical guide to raising local bumble bees, by Elaine Evans, Ian Burns and Marla Spivak.

The 76-page, full-color guide provides the step-by-step information needed to find, capture, house and feed the next generation of bumble bees.
