Relocated American bumblebee nest

7 posts in this topic

Howdy Folks,

 

Been a couple weeks but my old computer kept crashing giving me the blue screen of death and got a new one now. I relocated a bumblebee nest earlier this year and it has grown a lot and this species is the American Bumblebee ( Bombus Pensylvanicus ) I will go up sometime and take more of the nest since it is much larger and get video too.

Hey Vulgaris,

 

I have not been up today to look at the nest because my dad and I got home last night from our up North vacation in Wisconsin. Speaking of bumbles I saw some really cool bumbles in Wisconsin and I also got the eclipse too

Those are such a cool species I like how big they get as well. The nest grew to be very large and I have videos on my channel too

From the videos it looks like they were successful! Bumble nests without covering insulation seem to always build the wax canopy.
