Utah's Native Bees

Utah is home to about 1,100 of the roughly 20,000 described bee species worldwide, and it is estimated that the actual number on the planet is much higher! Although the most well known bees--honey bees and bumble bees--are social and live in colonies, the majority of bees have a solitary existence. The vast majority of the world's pollination services are performed by these critical insects that need our protection. 

Know and promote native bees.
