Bees and Wasps Far and Near

The honeybees at Edmonds Community College (where I teach English) have their own Facebook page now. While looking at some recent posts, I found a link to Facebook page for another honeybee program at a Seattle-area school, Green River Community College.

The Edmonds CC page also offered a link to a recent Seattle Times story about the large amount of wasps people have spotted in the area lately. While wasps are also pollinators, they unfortunately will attack honeybees (as well as people, as we all know too well!).

If you ever are seeing a lot of yellow/black/gold insects and aren't sure what they are, this page from Colorado State University has some useful information about distinguishing types of wasps and bees.
