What is a Bumblebee?

Bumblebee Information

There are more than 250 known species of bumblebees, which are members of the Apidae’s bee genus Bombus family. Bumblebees are mostly found in the Northern Hemisphere; however, many known species are common to Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand. Like the honey bee, bumblebees feed on nectar and collect pollen for feeding their offspring.

Bumblebees are considered social insects and thanks to their large bodies (in comparison to common bees) and their typical all black or black and yellow body hairs, they’re hard to mistake. Other species are known to have red- and orange-haired bodies, which is called pile, is soft to the touch, and covers the entire body. These fuzzy little insects are distinctive from similar bees with fuzzy hair by the corbicula (also referred to as a pollen basket), a shiny concave hind leg used to transport pollen. The lookalike bees don’t possess this unique feature and manage to transport pollen by wedging it between their body hairs.
