Bumble bees are social bees and have annual nests. A queen will emerge from hibernation in early spring and start her own colony. Worker bees develop first, followed by males and new queens towards the end of summer. A bumble bee nest often contains between 300 and 500 individuals. Newly mated queens will hibernate in the ground over winter; worker bees, males, and the old queen die in the fall. Bumble bees eat only nectar and pollen and do not produce large amounts of honey.
