There are concerns that numbers of pollinating insects such as bees and flies may be declining, but we need more data to be able to track changes in abundance across the country. The Flower-Insect Timed Count (FIT Count) is designed to collect new data on numbers of flower-visiting insects. 

Volunteers agree to watch a 50cm x 50cm patch of flowers for 10 minutes and record how many insects visit.
