Ontario is home to many species of Bumblebee, and June is an excellent time to go looking for them. Bumblebees are social bees, and only their queen survives the winter. The queen works hard in spring and summer to collect pollen, nectar and to lay eggs to build her colony.
Bumble Bee Watch is a Citizen Science program that encourages people to go out looking for bumble bees, learn to recognize species and to report what they’ve seen. Visit their website, and get started learning about the fascinating world of bumble bees!
