The bumblebees are large-sized insects from the family Apidae. You can find them in the eastern region of North America.
Many people know a lot about them because they are popular among gardeners and nature lovers.
What They Eat
Bumblebees are social insects that collect pollen from plants to make honey. These bees spend most of their time flying around in search of food, and by doing so, they help pollinate the foliage. In fact, bees play an irreplaceable role in the ecosystem that benefits just about every living creature.
How They Fly
Bumblebees fly with the help of an instinct called “honeybee brain.” It has often been wondered how an insect with such a big body can fly with such small wings. But recent studies indicate that the bumblebee flies by flapping its wings back and forth rather than up and down.
In addition, their wings move at 130 flaps per second.
Interesting, never knew that! Thanks 🙏
Maybe i will let them bee. Lol
Bumblebees are amazing and beautiful. What do they do in the winter months?
This was some great info
I LOVE BUMBLEBEES!!!!
AND HONEY BEES!
THEY’RE SWEET, SMART, SOCIABLE ANIMALS!!!
The human race would starve to death without bees!!!
Love bumble bees! I enjoy watching them in our yard flying from one flower to the next.
They’re thick in the Northwest U.S. also, as well in S.E. Alaska. They have been all my life anyway.
To me, besides man, the bee is the MOST important living being on earth. Without bees, you haven’t seen food shortages yet.
