This guide introduces common insect pollinators that could be seen visiting local flowers, both wild and cultivated. It is aimed at gardeners and floral enthusiasts who have no previous experience in identifying insects. Many of the selected species can be seen across central and south-east Vancouver Island as well as the Nanaimo area.

Identification of these pollinators is presented with:

  • An overview of basic insect anatomy
  • 200 large, clear colour photographs
  • A brief description of each pollinator group highlighting the main features needed for identification
  • A mention of the size of the pollinator and the peak months during which it would be commonly seen.

If you enjoy flowers, and have always wanted to know more about the bees and other pollinators visiting them, then this guide is for you.
