Point surveys are timed surveys that will take place in one location within an adopted grid cell. They are approximately 1 hectare (2.5 acres) in area with abundant flowering resources and surveys last 45 person minutes (45 min. / # of people surveying will determine the survey length). Point surveys will help to determine the number of bumble bee species that live within or nearby the survey area and will also include rapid habitat surveys. Bumble bees are generally active from March through September depending on the habitat, species, and weather. Some species may be active earlier, and some may be active later. But, since the goal of this project is to get a better understanding of the distribution of all species in California, point surveys will take place in the middle of the season: May, June, July, and August. Because we are starting the project mid-season in 2021, in this first year we'll welcome point surveys from later in the year also.
