Cam­paign to count new bee species

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

A CROW­LAND gar­den cen­tre is invit­ing peo­ple to take part in a sur­vey about a spe­cial type of bum­ble­bee this month.

The gar­den cen­tre, on the B1166 Post­land Road, is back­ing the Bum­ble­bee Con­ser­va­tion Trust’s (BBCT) Tree Bee Sur­vey as part of its In­sect and Wildlife Week, which runs from June 21 un­til June 27.

The sur­vey also in­v­oles the Bees, Wasps and Ants Record­ing So­ci­ety. It aims to get peo­ple to re­port sight­ings of one of the nation’s new­est bees, the tree bum­ble­bee, which ar­rived in 2001 from France. It has a brown cen­tral body, black ab­domen and white tail. For more in­for­ma­tion and to take part in the sur­vey, please visit www.bum­ble­beecon­ser­va­tion. org.uk/tree_bee.htm.
