Bumblebees Pantoum Poetry

There are some two hundred and fifty species of bumblebees
Bumble meaning to hum, buzz, drone, or move ineptly or floundering
Bumblebees have round bodies covered in soft hair called pile
Can beat their wings about two hundred times a second warming their bodies

Bumble meaning to hum, buzz, drone, or move ineptly or floundering
They do not have ears, not known whether or how well they can hear
Can beat their wings about two hundred times a second warming their bodies
They feed on nectar, using their long hairy tongues to lap up the liquid.

They do not have ears, not known whether or how well they can hear
Many are social insects that form colonies with a single queen

Smaller colonies than honeybee, as few as fifty individual in a nest

Female bumblebees can sting repeatedly but generally ignore humans

The eggs that hatch develop into female workers, feeding the young

They are important agricultural pollinators slowly declining caused by pesticides

    • I get excited seeing a bumblebee now that I live in town, I must say I don’t see many these days, when I lived on the farm out in the country I would see many flying around the garden, actually, I miss it now, Sad! Thanks for commenting. Have a nice day.
