WILD BEES OF SLOVENIA
As pollinators of
numerous plants,
bees are indispensable
for the survival of
terrestrial ecosystems.
Their predecessors
were wasps, which
substituted animal
prey for pollen and
nectar from flowers
of the flowering
plants.

IN SLOVENIA,
562 wild bee
species
have been registered
so far, most of them
living a solitary life.
Every female makes the
nest by herself and takes
care of the food
necessary for her
descendants.
Bees are distinguishable

They are from 3 mm
to 2.5 cm (the size
reached by the giant
carpenter bee) long.
Wild bees are at risk of
extinction due to the
lack of bee fauna,
insecticide use and
habitat destruction.
We can help the wild
bees by providing nest
sites for them, i.e.
hollow stems (e.g. old
bamboo canes), holes
drilled into ...
BUILDING THE SCHOOL'S INSECT HOTEL:
A solitary bee
pollinates as much as
two bumblebees, a
bumblebee pollinates
as much as 60
domestic honey bees.
A solitary bee pollinates as much as 120 domestic honey bees.

Wild Bees of Slovenia

  1. 1. WILD BEES OF SLOVENIA
  2. 2. As pollinators of numerous plants, bees are indispensable for the survival of terrestrial ecosystems.
  3. 3. Their predecessors were wasps, which substituted animal prey for pollen and nectar from flowers of the flowering plants.
  4. 4. Plants discharge nectar in their flowers for the very purpose to attract pollinators, and as pollen is a protein-rich nutrient, it suffices for the development of the bees' offspring.
  5. 5. IN SLOVENIA, 562 wild bee species have been registered so far, most of them living a solitary life.
  6. 6. Every female makes the nest by herself and takes care of the food necessary for her descendants. Bees are distinguishable from each other by their life habits and adaptation to their plant hosts.
  7. 7. They are from 3 mm to 2.5 cm (the size reached by the giant carpenter bee) long.
  8. 8. Wild bees are at risk of extinction due to the lack of bee fauna, insecticide use and habitat destruction.
  9. 9. We can help the wild bees by providing nest sites for them, i.e. hollow stems (e.g. old bamboo canes), holes drilled into blocks of wood, bricks with holes …
