I saw another queen bumblebee outside but by the time I wrangled my birbs into a room and locked the door, she was long gone  :dash:

I’ve seen 6 queens this year and e v e r y s i n g l e t i m e I was unable to catch them. But every time I see a worker and mistake it for a queen, I catch it no problem.

Just be thankful you’ll have new colonies founded near you. Make sure your yard has good foraging plants that bloom throughout the season. Overseeding your lawn with clover seeds is an easy hack. Where there is clover, there is hope for bees.

Keep ordinary ants in extraordinary ways.

I just read this fully and I have a question. Why clovers? I thought they were a type of non flowering weed ;-;
