My name is Dr Margriet Dogterom and am the founder and owner of Beediverse. I write this blog for all who love bees and who want to learn more about these wonderful creatures.
This free workshop is a great way to harvest your mason bee cocoons and learn about this fascinating hobby.
More than 50 people have already signed up and it should be a lot of fun learning about the different ways that people keep and manage mason bees.
I will be there to lend a hand with identifying the various insects that can be found in mason bee nests.
Come and join the fun at this yearly event.
See you there!

The Seattle Tree Fruit Society have a great Key to identifying apple varieties. This key was recently moved to a separate website.

Here you see apples in their wonderful colour. They look good enough to eat!
This wonderful Key takes the mystery out of apple varieties.
Whenever I go to and apple festival, I remember the colourful show, but traits of individual varieties are lost to me. With this key, that old apple tree in the backyard can be identified.
