One of the aims of the Newfoundland and Labrador Beekeeping Association is to promote protection of bee ecosystems in Newfoundland and Labrador including that of native/wild pollinators. This section of the Association website deals with our native/wild pollinators.  We plan to provide an photo inventory of bees, wasps, hornets and yellow jackets found in Newfoundland and Labrador to aid identification and to help the general public tell the difference between honeybees and other species.

 

In the meantime, have a look at Barry Hicks' A Guide to the Bees of Insular Newfoundland (2012), and his

"How to Distinguish between Honey Bees and Other Insects."
