Much like humans, bumblebees can be 'forgetful' too, reveals a new research.
For rearing their young, bees need to be able to select flowers providing the most nutritious pollen and they know it even before landing on the flower simply by looking at the colour of the petals, says a study.
Researchers have said that bumblebees, despite having tiny brains, are capable of some remarkable learning feats, especially when they might get a tasty reward.
Believe it! Bumblebees are capable of flying at much higher elevations - higher than even Mount Everest!
Pesticides are affecting the physical growth of bumblebees thereby putting the survival of their colonies at risk, according to a new study.
Though they have tiny brains, bees are smart enough to pick out the most attractive flowers by watching other bees and learning from their behaviour, scientists have found.
Bumblebees, beetles and butterflies are more endangered than lions and tigers, a new study has warned.
Two studies suggest a common type of pesticide is causing problems for honeybees and bumblebees.
Four previously abundant species of bumblebee are close to disappearing in the US, researchers said.
