Two families of Hymenoptera were obtained at Hacienda Tabi that were not found at Kiuic Research Station: Xiphydriidae and Scoliidae
. Specimens of the family Xiphydriidae were harvested via malaise traps, while those of the family Scoliidae
were collected in sweep nets.

The four largest families were Apidae (17%), Sphecidae (17%), Tephritidae (15%) and Scoliidae
Danaus gilippus, milkweed bugs (Hemiptera: Lygaeidae: Lygaeus and Oncopeltus), wasps (Hymenoptera: Pompilidae, Scoliidae
, Sphecidae, Vespidae), and Diptera (Bombyliidae, Conopidae, Stratiomyidae) were not observed removing pollinia in either year [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 3 OMITTED], although pollinia were found in small quantities on some of these visitors in our haphazard collections.
The primary difference in pollinators was the family Scoliidae
, which accounted for 104 of the 157 hymenopteran pollinators collected at the blueberry farm.
