Description

During the course of ecological studies of certain native bees which pollinate the low-bush blueberry in Maine, it was noted that several species chose particular areas in which to construct their nests. It is the object of this bulletin to describe the characteristics of these chosen sites and to compare them to areas that are not conducive to nesting. This study was carried out in Deblois, Washington County, on areas known as "blueberry-barrens." The predominant soil in the area is Colton gravelly sandy loam.
