Management and multiplication of Euglossini bees’ nests (Hymenoptera, Apidae)

Duration: 2014-2018

Funded by: Bolsa Capes

Coordination: Breno Magalhaes Freitas Link para Currículo Lattes

The bees of the Euglossini tribe are widely distributed in the Neotropical region. Due to their importance in pollination of wild and agricultural plants we have tried to develop techniques for their management. In this study, the objective was to evaluate the use of trap nests (Nas) in natural nesting in an anthropic area to collect bionomic data and concomitantly identify the botanical species that make up the bees’ diet.
