Identify Types of Bees: The Bombus Bumble Bee

Bombus Bees, more commonly known as “Bumble Bees,” are the first types of bees to emerge in spring and the last to disappear in fall. Some Bombus species, however, are endangered and nearing extinction.

Bumble bees are among the first bees to emerge in the spring and the last to disappear in the fall. They visit a succession of flowers from a wide variety of plants throughout the foraging season, from early-flowering willows to late-summer blooms such as goldenrod.
