The BeeSpotter team is proud to announce that they are adding Indiana to the list of states for which they can identify bee spottings! They added Ohio to their repertoire last year, so it was only a matter of time before they expanded to Indiana as well.

If you live in Indiana, go create a BeeSpotter account, go out and snap some bee photos, then upload them to BeeSpotter for identification by the experts! While you're at it, tell a few of your friends about it too!
