Lindsie McCabe, Ph.D.

Lindsie McCabe, Ph.D., with long light brown hair and red wire-rimmed glasses and wearing a fuschia hooded windbreaker, smiles at the camera, next to a blue plastic box hanging from a tree. the box is open on the side facing the camera, and inside are two bunches of small wooden tubes, many of which appear capped with dirt at the ends.

Lindsie McCabe, Ph.D., is a postdoctoral fellow with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service who led a recent study on practices for deploying Osmia lignaria bees for pollination in orchards. Here, McCabe pauses next to a O. lignaria nest box during the season after bloom and bee foraging. In the next box, tunnels with “mud caps” are nests filled with immature O. lignaria bees.
