    1. So I pretty much “read” this, in the sense that you can really read any field guide or reference book. Lots of great information in the first part of the book— bee anatomy (which helps a lot when learning to ID), natural history, their role as pollinators, behavior. I became obsessed with bees this year since starting a garden at my new place and I’ve spent countless hours standing around in my backyard with a camera, photographing bees. I really never knew how many bee species there rea [...]


    2. This is more of a "flip around" reference book (though it has gorgeous pictures!) than a "read from beginning to end" book. This had to go back to the library before before I could get through the entire thing, but it has earned a place on my "to be purchased" list! Fascinating blurbs, well-organized and beautiful photography.


    3. I'm not in any way a specialist, just a girl with a deck garden and an interest in the pollinators that come by. I picked up this book to help me better understand different bee species, and perhaps get involved in some of the pollinator projects that are tracking endangered bee species (like the Great Canadian Bumble Bee Count or Bumble Bee Watch). The book has very detailed information on identifying bees with an overwhelming amount of beautiful pictures to assist! There is useful info on crea [...]


    4. This is a book that I will turn to again and again. It is well written, perhaps a little more scientific that I am knowledgeable about - but that is good. Wonderful pictures. It takes in well know varieties of bees as well as the more obscure ones. My current interest is in Mason bee, mining bees, wool carder bees and leaf cutter bees, all of which we have in our yard, as well as bumble bees and honey bees. Worth the price for extensive information.


    5. Wow this was loaded with info but it was presented in a clear manner though I found myself skipping some of the bees that were not found in my part of the country (fine I even read most of those because I find bees fascinating). I made up a few good lists from this book and will be re-reading this book in the future. Bzzzzz.


    6. A very good book to help you figure out all the bees that visit your garden once you make it bee and hummingbird friendly.



    7. I like to photograph both vertebrate and invertebrate animals. I'm not a biologist and I don't aspire to be one. However, I do like to identify what I've photographed. Most species of birds and mammals are relatively easy to identify by comparing my photos with field guides. That's not the case for insects. I bought The Bees in Your Backyard: A Guide to North America's Bees by Joseph S. Wilson and Olivia Messinger Carril to help me identify bees and then read everything in the book except the re [...]


    8. A simply incredible book concerning bees in North America. Wilson and Carril begin their guide book with fundamental information concerning the differences between bees, wasps, and flies, which can easily be confused among one another, as well as information concerning the basic life history of various bees. They then proceed to provide a comprehensive overview of the major families of bees resident in North America - Andrenidae, Apidae, Colletidae, Halictidae, Megachilidae, and Melittidae. Vari [...]


    9. If you're a biologist, this is a great text and reference. Hang on to it.If you're an enthusiast, this book is thorough but easily understandable. Share it.If you don't like bees, and you're still reading this, check your library to see if you might at least consider planting more flowers in your garden.



    10. It is well written, informative and easy to understand at the same time, and has great pictures that are easy to see. Definitely a winner!
