Catastrophe for the bumblebees
Catastrophe for the bumblebees
Deep in the long grass a bumblebees' nest has recently been unearthed and raided, most likely by badgers. The bees build their nest below the ground often occupying an existing cavity such as an old mouse nest. The nest comb and brood-cells are made from a waxy material produced by the bees from special wax-glands on their bodies, and the whole nest is usually covered and protected inside a ball of dead, finely shredded grass, moss, animal fur or similar material.
