Learn how to identify common garden bees and find out why they never seem to stay still.
In March and April queen bumblebees shake off their winter sleep and emerge to found new colonies. In this episode, we learn how to identify the commonest garden species and find out why they never seem to stay still. Bees, like all species of ants, bees and wasps, have a highly unusual system to determine whether new bees will be male or female. But although all worker bees are female, the queen tries to prevent her daughters from having offspring of their own.
