* BumbleeBees - "Gardens need Bees"
The natural history of these fascinating and useful insects, how to attract them to your garden and provide homes for them in artificial nests.
Bumblebees are social bees and live in colonies, This book is an account of the fascinating lives of these beneficial insects and considers their colonies as small businesses.
Flowers and bees have developed a mutual dependency over evolutionary time and this relationship has become fundamental to the ecology of the rest of life on earth. This is rue for we humans, to the dramatic extent that much of the visual impact of natural habitats that we value depends on it. Even more dramatic is the fact that every third mouthful of human food depends on the unmanaged pollination services of bees.
