Ag Guide – Native Bee Handbook

The Ag Guide Australian Native Bees. It covers a fair bit, there’s a lot about Solitary Bees where most other books are all about Stingless Bees. My books have just arrived and look pretty good. It may share a little information with Tim Heards book as he had some input but if you’re a crazy bee person and like all kinds of natives then it’s still a great and informative book to have.


Quote:

“Combining the substantial expertise of many of Australia’s leading native bee researchers, this book is a guide to observing and keeping Australia’s broad range of native bee species.”
