Degree of Threat: Low
Comments: This species, and probably this subgenus, appears to be only mildly to sub-lethally affected by pathogens that are thought to be the main cause for the annihilation of subgenus Bombus in many places. In fact, B. impatiens reared in Europe and returned to North America for pollination services, were probably the source of the pathogen. In addition, the species adapts well to a variety of habitats, nectar sources, and climates.
