Identify Bumblebees on your patch

There are 24 species in Britain, but with queens looking different to males (and sometimes to workers), as well as different colour forms for most species, there can be a bewildering array of different-looking bees.

This guide will help you to identify the 7 most common Bumblebee species in the UK.

Fore more information visit the Bumblebee Conservation Trust website.
