The Bee's Knees

Bumblebees pollinating the broccoli flowers;  Kathleen Faulkner

Ah, the lovely, charismatic bumble bee!

Unlike honey bees, bumblebees are much less aggressive.  They will only sting if their life is threatened
and the good news is they won't die if they must sting.

Not the bee if you want honey but quite the bee if you want to pollinate your flowers.

Unfortunately, their biggest threat is man and his pesticides.
