Bees of various species continue to be introduced outside their native range since they are widely regarded as beneficial. Recently, however, serious objections have been raised regarding this practice. The possible impacts of introduced bees, namely competition with native organisms for floral resources or nest sites, transmission of parasites or pathogens to native organisms, changes in seed set of native plants (either increase or decrease) and pollination of exotic weeds, are briefly discussed.
