Default Re: Bumble bee could suffer the same fate as honey bees!

I thought Bumblebees would do better with the decline of Honey Bees but I guess not. In my garden in France there are many Bumblebees and the pollinate everything , Honey Bees are almost absent because of Varoa. Here in Bethesda there seems to be a few Bumblebees but no great numbers and they have disapeared now , I would have thought they would not have died off until the first frost. I was hoping that Bumblebees would be fertilizing my Red Thalia at the moment but there seems to be no pollinating insects about.
Thanks for the information on the Bumblebees , I'll keep an eye open for more info in the future.
Later
Steve
