If you participated in 2013 and are still watching your block, you may have noticed new emergence holes in some of the nest plugs from last summer.  Emergence holes are the only data we will be tracking this summer from the 2013 blocks.  Our data entry portal is nearing completion, so please make notes as to when you first noticed emergence holes in the 2013 plugs and you can enter it later.

If you do not see any emergence holes yet, that’s OK too.  Many of our bees and wasps won’t emerge until later (sometimes much later) in the summer.
