What makes bumblebees cuter than an ordinary bee are their fluffier butts. These little busy bees work all day, fluttering their tiny wings through flowers. Just imagine how happy they must be to see plants full of flowers. Oh! It must be like seeing a yummy burger when you are starving.
But do they only drink nectar? No, they are very hard workers, harvesting and storing nectar for the
They are exhausted after long work hours and usually find a cozy flower to fall asleep on. Usually, their cute butts are covered with pollen and are sticking out of the flowers while they nap, a big lesson from such a tiny bee. As much as you need to work hard, you must also get some rest.

If you see any tired bumblebees, you can give them a slight energy boost so that they can get back to flying around. Mix water and WHITE sugar in a ratio of 1:1 and offer a few drops to the tired little bee using a teaspoon or a small bottle lid placed upside down. It will slowly drink the sugar water, get its energy back, and fly away.
All you have to do is give it time and watch from a distance!
Ensure you do not use brown sugar or store-bought honey, as their little tummies cannot digest these well.
#5 What a great spot to hide!

#6 Totally pollen for you!
They live in underground nests.
#7 Just nap even when the flower is too small for you.
They use smells to communicate with each other.
#8 Bee positive no matter what!
They are not aggressive, unlike the honeybees.
#09: Or you can pretend to faint!
They play an important role in pollinating plants. Pollinated flowers go on to become fruits so no bees would mean no food.
