The Honey Bee
Wisconsin State

In 1977, the third grade class of Holy Family School in Marinette was studying the legislative process, hands-on.

 With encouragement from the Wisconsin Honey Producers Association,
they asked the Legislature to select the honey bee
(Apis mellifera)

as the state insect.

The news got the school community abuzz. Attempts to get
other elementary school students to help
choose a state bug
by popular ballot failed.

 The monarch butterfly, dragonfly, ladybug and mosquito were contenders
for the title,
 but the honey bee
won out.
