Urban Bees is project to map and observe Apis dorsata nesting sites in Bangalore.
Information about the nesting sites will help us to estimate the number of colonies in Bangalore. The news are full about reports about the decline of animal species. In India, there are data about tigers and other big wild animals but we do not know much about the insects and in particular the beneficial insects pollinators. To know what is happening, we need to start to count them. A good start is to try to count and observe Apis dorsata colonies in our neighborhood.

We will collect that information and prepare a map of Apis dorsata nesting sites in Bangalore. You also can ask for help and advice for that use Ask Us.
