Frequently asked questions

Each year our enquiries email address is inundated with questions about bumblebees, their behaviour, where they nest, how to identify them and many other interesting questions.

The About bees section of our website, answers many of these questions but some of the answers don't fit neatly under the headings listed. That is why we have added this Frequently asked questions heading so that we can explain some of the more wierd and wonderful things about bumblebees.

Please use the links on the left hand navigation panel to learn more.

“Bumblebees are key factors in our wildlife. If they disappear many of our plants will not bear fruit. I am proud to be associated with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust”.
