    How do you know if the queen has been fertilised? If she has not she will produce males and they will not help the colony. And all will die.

    Nice if it works, However, if more queens are killed then what the point.

    If you catch a feeding queen nearby flowers she will most likely already have a nest. You will destroy the breed in that nest.

    About how long does it take for her to build up a nest and when do you pull the cork for her to fly?

    At what point do you allow her to leave the box to forage without supplemental food assistance?

    Thank you for posting this, Kimberly. Questions: How do you know if a bumblebee is a queen? What size is the entrance hole on the box? Do bumblebees cluster for warmth like honeybees do?

    wait…it's probably been asked already…is your capture a worker bee that becomes a queen? I didn't know queens roamed around I thought their primary focus was to lay eggs.. is that not the case for colonizing bumble bees?

    These lil furry guys love my flowers and they're actually really friendly. I don't spray them or kill them they're very good for my flowers I get 75 to a 100 every late summer. I know they don't live long but they're pretty used to me I can come up on them with in inches and watch them and they don't fly away. They hang out with the painted ladies. On the flowers

    Please don’t catch them unless they are just emerging from hibernation, there are endangered . We need to help them repopulate 🙁

    I heard that in Poland were first attempts with bumbleebee rearing in the world. But there is very weak knowledge base in polish language. This video is very rich source of information. Thanks.

    I can see they don't teach editing at OSU lol. Seriously though, this is helpful. Although sugar can ferment just as well as honey can. Get ya some drunk ass bees lol.

    Thank you for such great informations.Il try to catch a queen this spring and place the hive in the greenhouse.I also have bees ,so they will live a happy life if il grow a collony with lots of pollen from my bees.Hope the bumblebees dont get affected by varroa mites thogh or else il might have to treat them too as i do with the bees .Wonderfull video that i was looking for a long time,and wonderfull voice.Thank you.

    I have some of the same comments as others on this – don't capture a queen who is foraging for pollen!!! She most likely already has a nest. If you have reason to want to invite bumble bees to nest in your area where a queen would not normally nest (green house or roof terrace garden), it might be a better practice to position an appropriately-sized box with nesting material in a place where a queen is likely to emerge and start looking for her own place to nest. Then when she begins to establish her colony, the box can be corked at night (when all of the bees are back in the nest and quiet), relocated, and opened again the next morning. I think you should not transport them large distances as they need to be acclimated to your area. If possible, tent the nest box or keep green house windows closed so that they can make a few orientation circles when leaving the box before going off to forage.

    Would a cardboard box work as a nest?

  • Wesley Smith

    Will the bees be there after winter or do they leave and hibernate in a hole and then go to a different place after winter?

  • Daniel Monson

    This is a collection of really bad info. IF you collect a queen while she's out shopping flowers then her brood will die as they are counting on her to return with pollen i.e. their food. Also you say to use pink fiberglass insulation for nesting material. That is insane! Look how human skin reacts to it – image a little bees sensitivity to being cut by spun fiberglass.
