In case you can’t find the form…it’s on our website too: https://cpb-us-w2.wpmucdn.com/u.osu.edu/dist/2/86606/files/2020/05/Bee-Survey-Instructions-1-1.pdf
DEgcMiNUIubGlQ1b/QAAEAAAAAAiEom6ELNTbWFAaSycoa05QpZg181ZxGQTOm6jhjC+
23:34
I'm getting a little worried about crushing issues
DEgcMiNUIubGlQ1b/QAAEAAAAAAiEom6ELNTbWFAaSycoa05QpZg181ZxGQTOm6jhjC+
26:15
yes, that's correct
Denise Ellsworth
27:15
We could try a few virtual pinning sessions?
DEgcMiNUIubGlQ1b/QAAEAAAAAAiEom6ELNTbWFAaSycoa05QpZg181ZxGQTOm6jhjC+
27:34
I'd definitely be up for this!

Would the OSU campus in Lima work for you?
Patricia Dutton
29:49
oardc in Wooster?
Denise Ellsworth

Karen Feltham
30:43
Logan County Extension also has a microscope with digital
Helen's iPad
31:31
how fancy does the microscope have to be? Green Creek Wildlife Society has a couple microscopes in Sandusky County. we could potentially meet up here and use our microscope. Helen Hollis
Jenny Richards
34:04
Do we need to keep the bees frozen on our way to deliver them?
DEgcMiNUIubGlQ1b/QAAEAAAAAAiEom6ELNTbWFAaSycoa05QpZg181ZxGQTOm6jhjC+
35:38
I've got a lot of yellow legged bees
Carl
44:29
last week I got about 50
Catherine Kennedy Gunn
44:39
Agree about 50
Mary Schilling
44:58
Last week was much larger than any week I’ve had so far.
DEgcMiNUIubGlQ1b/QAAEAAAAAAiEom6ELNTbWFAaSycoa05QpZg181ZxGQTOm6jhjC+
44:59
I'm pretty sure I have more than 80 bees so far. I'm catching around 15-20 per sample week
Carl
45:11
I'm going to try to start counting them
Brooks
45:31
above 180 flies a week
Catherine Kennedy Gunn
45:38
Haha
DEgcMiNUIubGlQ1b/QAAEAAAAAAiEom6ELNTbWFAaSycoa05QpZg181ZxGQTOm6jhjC+
48:13
I thought there was someone wanting spiders?
Karen Feltham
49:12
Am glad you are checking spiders!
DEgcMiNUIubGlQ1b/QAAEAAAAAAiEom6ELNTbWFAaSycoa05QpZg181ZxGQTOm6jhjC+

50:31
would Heather Holm be interested?
Carl
50:34
Does the dish washing liquid hurt the specimens. I've started doing a rinse with fresh water before freezing
Denny
51:58
I am seeing less bees this summer, are the numbers down ?
Jenny Richards
52:11
How many people are surveying? 88
Patricia Dutton
52:20
What about labels?
Jeanne Poremski
52:47
Pretty sure that I am seeing more this year.
Catherine Kennedy Gunn
54:22
Sam Droege has a link
Helen's iPad
54:23
has a survey like this ever been done before? and so, do you have a base number for comparing whether the number of bees is increasing or decreasing?
DEgcMiNUIubGlQ1b/QAAEAAAAAAiEom6ELNTbWFAaSycoa05QpZg181ZxGQTOm6jhjC+
54:58
the address is not representative of where I sample in my site, it is over the other side of the lake! I have been using town and county only.
Brooks
55:35
I have a feeling that many medium sized beess are climbing out of the bowls, because i see some flying that aren't showing up in bowls. Is this a concern?
Brooks
56:44
I have actually seen some longhorns climbing out.
Carl
59:23

kellycapuzzi

Libby Glade

Loved the info on the Hibiscus turret bee. Just saw one and had no idea what it was...and then came the answer in your weekly tip. Thanks!
mercarsten@aol.com
01:02:43

Brooks
01:02:53

I was looking at a curcubit (Volunteer--not sure if squash, melon, or cucumber) flower last week. within a couple seconds, 3 different kinds of bee tried to get into the same flower. So I figured that must be the best nectar ever.
Karen Feltham
01:04:17
Thanks for all the information that you share!!
Jeanne Poremski
01:04:20
What are the tiny black, wedge-shaped insect inside hibiscus? They look like wedge beetles. Imperfect metamorphosis.
Patricia Dutton
01:04:37
I have lots of squash bees
Laura Weber
01:05:35
Is there a boo-bee prize to whomever ends up with the most bees?
Jeanne Poremski
01:05:37
How long should I dry my bees to fluff. Low heat?
Catherine Kennedy Gunn
01:05:44
Thanks!!!
Mary Brennan
01:06:22
