All About Insects: Bumblebee (18 Pics)

The bumblebee is the most frost-resistant insect. He knows how to contract the pectoral muscles, accelerate the blood, thereby warming the body up to 40 degrees. Thus, he feels great even in an unheated atmosphere.

#1 The nectar can be harvested at dawn, making it a leader in this activity even in front of the bees.

#2 The bumblebee insect does not belong to loners, it lives in a family in which there are queens, males, “hard workers”.

The number of one family can range from 100 to 500 individuals.

For example, in bees, this number is much higher. They live almost everywhere. The exceptions are Australia and Antarctica.

#3 Females and males are practically indistinguishable in appearance.

Huge queens can reach 3 cm. The nests are located on the ground.
