Pollinators

I have added a number of pictures of a bumble bee nest to the gallery. I received a call from a lady saying she had this nest on her front porch and what should she do. I questioned if they were bumble bees and not another type of bee (hornets, etc.). Sure enough, they were bumble bees. I was fascinated since I had never seen a bumble bee nest. The woman asked if I could move them since she didn’t want to kill them but also didn’t want them on her front porch. I did move them but I believe all bumble bees die out in the winter except for the queen. The important thing to remember is that there are many different pollinators that are beneficial to us all.
