Bumblebee History

Bumblebees are one of the most amazing types of bees. They live of nectar and pollen found in many different types of plants and are excellent pollinators.

Bumblebee Behaviour

Bumblebees and Honeybees are the only two common varieties of social bees. They have an annual cycle of life. Each year the queen builds a nest in a wall cavity, hedge bank or perhaps underneath a handy shed. The queen builds up a stock of honey and pollen. She then lays lots of eggs and incubated them. The larvae hatch into males, workers and queens. The new queens then mate and survive over the winter. The males, workers and old queen die in the autumn. The following year the cycle begins again in a new nest.

Bumblebee Varieties

There are lots of varieties of Bumblebees, too many for this introduction. Nearly all of them are large and brightly coloured. Have a click through the images shown above or if you are interested in reading more about the Bumblebees then visit the Bubblebee Conservation Trust or the Natural History Museum website.

I hate this bee - Arthur-Thomas,

I like this bee because of it's orange stinger.I have never seen a bee with a orange stinger.

absolutely un-bee-lieveably vicious!!!! - Patty/Patricia,

I own a bumblebee hive, consisting of over 3000 bumblebees. Unfortunately, these bees have suffered the loss of their queen bee recently, which has led to extreme aggression. And they just wont beehive themselves. They have become attached to me, like i am the queen bee, and they follow me everywhere. They do not let me bee alone, as i am constantly shrouded by over 3000 bees! DO NOT RECOMMEND BUMBLEBEES IN YOUR BACKYARD UNLESS YOU STRIVE TO BE A QUEEN BEE JUST LIKE ME! But, on the other hand they are wonderfully looking, and produce delicious honey that i sell for much profit. So, if you are ok with many bees following you but much money, please buy these bees off me.

Un bee leavable - Jonathan,

Absolutely buzzing with them

Not a fan - Keaton,

Really not a fan of bees in general, especially these ones. Was stung yesterday and reacted badly to it. Keep away from these.
