There are over 300 pollinator bee species in the Toronto region. To address their significant population decline, a series of nesting habitat analogs were designed for species that nest below ground, at grade, or above it in plant stems, wood, or buildings. These prototypes will be mounted throughout Toronto in spring 2015 for ongoing monitoring.
