Could you tell me if this is a Bumble bee? I have dozens of them everywhere and are wondering where they are coming from. Thank You!
Yep, those are bumbles. Bumble bee species are plentiful, they all have different markings.
Yes it's a bumble bee. The thorax is generally very hairy, abdomen may be slightly hairy or almost no hair.
You obviously konw thats a bumble bee from the previous post(s)...but I want to comment on those flowers...very beautiful!
I have hundreds of these bees on my caryopteris and other flowers. Where do they live? In a hive, in my house, in the ground? I see them sleeping at night right on the flowers.
To any of you interested in bumbles,... here is a nice educational video....
