Bumble Bees Prefer Warmer Flowers

August 8th, 2006 by Laura Moncur in News

Picture via CNNWith all that is happening in the world, it can be hard to remember that there is still so much to learn about it. Take bumble bees, for instance.

The heat has been unpleasant this summer, but not for bumblebees. They seem to prefer to land on flowers that are warmer in temperature. It has nothing to do with the temperature of the nectar. They prefer to sit on warmer flower petals despite the temperature of the nectar.

Every day, we learn a little more about the natural world around us and it opens up to us like a fairy tale.
