Our project looked at how the presence of plants around a trap affects the number of bees collected. Bees were collection using modified Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum protocol. Two thrids of all the bees collected were from traps without plants surrounding them. Knowing what bees are attracted to provides efficient data collection on local bee diversity.
