Bumblebees are a large and fuzzy insects and they are the most important pollinators in the echo system. We depend on these pollinators to transfer pollen between male and female flower parts. Their wing beating combined with their large bodies vibrates flowers until they release pollen, which is called buzz pollination. Buzz pollination helps plants produce more fruit.

But did you know that….

  1. Their wings beat at 130 times per second
  2. Bumblebees don’t die when they sting
  3. Bees are covered in an oil that makes them waterproof
  4. Bumblebees flap their wings back and forth rather than up and down
  5. The queen is the mother of all the bees in a colony
