FITCount: Help us to count pollinating insects
FIT-Count (Flower-Insect Timed Count)
Observe flowers and insects for ten minutes in nice weather! This simple survey collects data on the total number of insects visiting a particular flower (ideally one of the target flowers from our list). FIT counts can be conducted anywhere, including gardens and parks, in warm, dry weather, anytime from April through September.
Each individual count helps make our data more meaningful. You can find all the information you need in the instructions, which you can download below. You can also watch our video instructions to get an idea of what it's all about.
