Links


It is hard to find websites or written material on wasps and bees; this seems to be a topic that not many people take interest in. Although much of my info was gathered from my own observations, the websites below have helped me a lot, especially with info on Hymenopteran insects from elsewhere. There are actually many other websites on wasps and bees, but I have not listed them all as they mostly contain the same info. I consider the ones listed below to be some of the best on the web. Also, they provide links to many other websites.
