Bee Identification Website
BEE ID WEBSITE
As Bee Question Time begins again this season, we're delighted to share with you this Bee Identification website 
https://beedentify.info/
This site has been developed, and kindly shared by our Bee Health & Science Officer, Matthew Richardson.
Hopefully this will be a great tool for you to refer all the many queries from the public about bees, wasps, nests and the like.
It contains a bank of images, and users can select those that closest resemble what they are seeing and then click on the answer where more information and advice is presented.
Many thanks Matthew and hopefully this will save us all some time!
