Related Link: A Bombuster year for BeeSpotter

For the second year in a row, BeeSpotter has reached a record number of verified submitted bee spottings!

In 2017, bee spotters contributed over 800 spottings to the project, the most BeeSpotter had ever received in a single season up to that point. This year, bee spotters surpassed last year's number by late August and the hope was to crest 900 this year.

Well, as it turns out, those goals were too modest. BeeSpotter just identified their 1,000th spotting! At the time of this writing, BeeSpotter has 1,016 verified bee spottings for 2018. The 1,000th spotting of this year was a honey bee submitted by the St. Louis Bee Brigade. Thanks go out to the Bee Brigade for all their excellent work spotting bees and submitting those spottings these past two years!

Visit BeeSpotter.org to view a listing of all the 2018 spottings.
