Classified ads work for you (lle By Sandy Anderson A little buzz about bumblebees Bumblebees are responsi- ble for pollinating an esti- mated 15% of all crops grown in the U.S. Some plants that are good examples Of plants that bum- blebees are particularly attracted to for a food source are: Willow, Gooseberry, Beardstongue, Rhodo-den- drons and Azaleas, Virginia waterleaf, clover, Hyssop, Bee Balm, Joe-pye weed, Wild mint, Asters, Goldenrods, Foxglove and Gallar.dia. Bumblebees have to learn to get nectar from the flow- ers. In some flowers it's quite easy; others are a challenge. Because the bumblebees must spend time learning how to get nectar in various shapes and colors of flower available, they tend to spe- cialize on one or two types or species of flowers at a time. This behavior called 'con- stancy' makes the bumblebee an invaluable pollinator of flowers and crops. To be fer- tilized the flower must have pollen of the same species. Pollen from another species is useless. In at least a few species, once a bumblebee has visited a flower, it leaves a scent mark on the flower. This scent mark deters visitation of the flower by other bum- blebees until the scent degrades. Scent marking also reduces the time spent probing unprofitable flowers. In order to release the pollen, bumblebees are able to grab onto the flower and move their flight muscles rapidly, causing the flowers and anthers to vibrate, dis- lodging pollen. This resonant vibration is .called buzz polli- nation. The honeybee rarely performs buzz pollination. About 8% of the flowers of the world are primarily polli- nated using buzz pollination. Bumblebees are increasingly cultured for agricultural use as pollinators because they can pollinate plant species using buzz pollination. They are often used in greenhous- es for buzz pollination. Once the bumblebees have collected nectar and pollen, bumblebees return to the nest and deposit the harvest- ed nectar and pollen into brood or wax cells for stor- age. Unlike honeybees, bum- blebees only store a few days worth of food and so aie much more vulnerable to food shortages. However, because bumblebees are much more opportunistic feeders than honeybees, ' these shortages may have less effect. Nectar is stored essentially in the form col- lected, rather than being processed into honey as done in honeybees; it is therefore very diluted and watery and is rarely consumed by humans. Bumblebees live only 'one growing season. The queen bee spends her winter in a sheltered area, whether in the ground or in a man-made structure. In early spring the queen comes out and finds a suitable place to create her colony, and then builds wax cells in which to lay her fer- tilized eggs from the previ- ous winter. The eggs that hatch develop into female workers, and in time the queen populates the colony, with workers feeding the young and performing other duties ~similar to honeybee workers. Queen and worker bum- blebees can sting, but their sting is not barbed like hon- eybees so they can sting more than once, They are non-aggressive but will sting in defense of their nest or if harmed ....
