UVM Pollinators in Solar Installations Study

Latest version published by Vermont Center for Ecostudies on Feb 18, 2020 Vermont Center for Ecostudies

Bees were collected using the pan trap method for a 2019 pilot study recording baseline data at pollinator-friendly solar installations throughout Vermont's Champlain Valley. Pan traps were deployed in transects just outside of proposed pollinator habitats along access roads or hedgerows, with 15 bowls in each transect. The traps were deployed for ~24 hours at each location.
