Hi all,

This is my first post on the BeeSource Forums

Basically I have Just sparked an Intrest in bees, But my knowledge is very Limited,

And would to love all about the Bombus.

But Keep Getting confued between ientifying different types,

If anyobody would like to help me out by giving me useful websites or even better,

If we could sure information on these Bombus, I basically need to know how to identify them from each other

So if you have Information on a couple above and could tell me key characteristics Such as colour and size,

Im basically looking for a way to distinguish between each one special characteristics.

For Now I will stick to the workers but would also like Information on all the races.
