The FSC Bees Identification Guide features 28 species of bees which can be seen flying in gardens.
As well as the ‘Big Six’ bumblebees, the guide includes common garden mining bees, cavity-nesting bees and cuckoo bees. Silhouettes next to each image show the typical life-size for each species.
Text on the reverse side includes a guide to flight periods, distribution of each species in Britain, and useful pointers to help distinguish between similar-looking species.
This chart is part of the FSC’s range of fold-out charts, designed to help users identify of a wide range of plants and animals. Each chart is laminated to make it splashproof and robust for use outdoors. Clear colour illustrations and text by experts in the subject make these valuable resources for all age groups. What a great addition to the family holiday packing list, for use around the garden or for groups such as the Scouts or Forest School. If buying larger quantities of guides for groups I will offer a small discount. Please enquire.
The full range of FSC products are available – please enquire if you have seen one that I do not have listed yet.
The Field Studies Council (FSC) is one of the UK’s leading publishers of identification guides, ranging from easy to use fold-out charts through intermediate level AIDGAP guides, to specialist books such as the Synopses of the British Fauna and RES Handbooks.
