Bees of Georgia

A website, developed by Georgia Gwinnett College, listing over 20,000 bee specimens representing over 200 native bee species, found in the Southeast -- specifically north Georgia. The main goal of the website, Bees of Georgia, is to provide easy bee identification and clear information for researchers, government officials, farmers and the general public. The information was compiled through SSARE-funded On-Farm Research grants. The research attempts to determine the regional make-up of native pollinators. The researchers hypothesize that native bees can supplement or even replace the honeybee in apple and other fruit and vegetable pollination in Georgia.
