Bees and mosquito control
I’m looking to partner with a biologist from my local mosquito control district to look at the non-target effects of mosquito spraying on native bees. It looks like most of the literature out there is on honeybees though. I was thinking of doing some pan trapping in areas where they are spraying, as well as not, for controls, and comparing the capture rates.
Is anyone out there doing anything similar or know of anyone that is? This is just barely in the planning stage so any tips or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
