Pheromone Lure and Trap Color Affects Bycatch in Agricultural Landscapes of Utah
TLDR
In general, nontarget insects were attracted to the H. armigera lure and multicolored trap, but further studies of trap color and pheromone lure specificity are needed to better understand these interactions and to minimize nontarget captures.
The native bee fauna of the Palouse Prairie (Hymenoptera: Apoidea)
TLDR
The community of native bees currently found in remnant fragments of the Palouse Prairie of northern Idaho and southeastern Washington State is described, representative of conditions in fragmented grasslands surrounded by intense agriculture, a common global land use pattern of conservation concern.
USBombus, a database of contemporary survey data for North American Bumble Bees (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Bombus) distributed in the United States
TLDR
USBombus is described, a large database that represents the outcomes of one of the largest standardized surveys of bumble bee pollinators globally, and will likely prove useful for investigations of the effects of anthropogenic activities on pollinator community composition and conservation status.
Sampling bee communities using pan traps: alternative methods increase sample size
TLDR
It is found that larger pan traps collect more specimens than small and medium sized traps, and that the addition of “nectar guides” can significantly increase the number of specimens collected.
AnthWest, occurrence records for wool carder bees of the genus Anthidium (Hymenoptera, Megachilidae, Anthidiini) in the Western Hemisphere
TLDR
This large dataset of occurrence records is the first to be simultaneously developed during a species-level systematic study and can potentially be used in species distribution and niche modeling studies, as well as in assessments of pollinator status and pollination services.
New records and range extensions of several species of native bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea) from Mississippi
TLDR
The geographic ranges of seven additional species are extended into the state of Mississippi and Anthemurgus and Brachynomada are also genera new to Mississippi, raising the total number of published species known from the state to 191.
