    Thinking of pollinator habitat often conjures images of sunny fields full of native wildflowers. While this IS excellent habitat for many pollinators, so too is a diverse, sun-speckled woodland. Woodlands provide pollinators with nectar, pollen, shelter, and nesting sites, making them valuable - if not well-known - pollinator habitat.

    While the growth of cities and suburban areas can displace some wildlife, many species actually thrive in these areas. Viewing these species as they travel through your backyard can be enjoyable, but sometimes conflict arises—usually in the form of eaten plants, dug up bulbs, burrows under porches, or holes in the lawn. Fortunately, most wildlife damage can be managed with the right techniques and strategies.

    Thank you for volunteering to be part of the 2018 Ohio Bumble Bee queen survey! By submitting data on when and where bumble bee queens are nest-hunting and on what plants they are feeding, you are giving us important information on the status of bumble bees in Ohio and how to protect them. Healthy bumble bee populations start with queens. Bumble bee nests are annual, starting again each year from a new queen. In late March or April, queens emerge from their winter burrows underground and begin searching for nest sites, and then later collect pollen and nectar to feed their new brood.
