BWARS – Bees, Wasps and Ants Recording Society

BWARS is the national society dedicated to studying and recording bees, wasps & ants (aculeate Hymenoptera) in Britain & Ireland.

I thumbed this up ages ago, but hadn’t got round to writing anything about it. It’s a site I visit often to find out stuff about these insects – usually when I’ve photographed one and am not sure what it is. Sometimes I still don’t know what it is after looking here, but that’s less to do with the site and more to do with my inexperience – and that many can’t be identified to species level from photographs.

A very useful site.
