Honey Bee on Mountain Mint
A honey bee (Apis mellifera) visiting a mountain mint (Pycnanthemum muticum) blossom.
The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture is conducting a citizen scientist native bee monitoring project that will ultimately allow us ( The Pa Dept of Ag) to make reccommendations to gardeners as to what kind of plants they should plant in a garden to make it pollinator friendly.
The project is in part funded by Haagen--Dazs. For more information please visit:
