  1. If they stop like that they aren’t asleep, they’re dead.

    • Not always… when the weather is cold they will stop and hang out till it is warmer. I’ve seen them do this.

    • What a cheery thought

    • No, I have tons of pics where they fall asleep around 6 or 7 pm in the flowers at my parents house. They just fall asleep where they are. You can rouse them. Early the next morning they are off to other flowers.

    • Try educating yourself before trying to bring everyone down. Just google it and you’ll see that it’s quite common for bees to fall asleep in flowers.

    The queen in the hive will not be amused.

    • Aren’t bumblebees solitary and without a hive?

    • No. Just smaller hives.
      Why got this censored the first time? This is valid information.

    • No queen for bumblebees!!

    • You are wrong. Of course bumblebees have a queen too. It’s slightly bigger than the workers. You see them in spring looking for a place for the hive. Look it up.

  3. Note to Gen Z:

    If a Video does not move it is called a Photograph.

    It doesn’t mean the people or things in it are dead.

  4. I actually found a bunch of bees curled up in my flowers at night one year and went online and asked if anyone could tell me why. I ended up talking to a bee keeper in NH who said they were sleeping. It gets cool at night and it slows them down and they can’t make it back to the hive so the curl up in the flowers until it gets warm enough in the morning.

      Aww that’s cute. Fluffy bees asleep in a flower 🌸.

    • <3 this

    • This is true. I’ve seen it too and even patted them while asleep.

    • If you pet a bumblebee and it lifts its middle leg waving at you. Don’t poke it again. It’s the last warning before it will use its stinger.

      Bees do hibernate, I’ve seen them frozen on thewall outside and whenthe sun warms them up they fly away.

    Lazy millennial bees. You want to get them moving, talk about a huge new honey tax to pay off their student loans. Pollen is a right!!!

    Wow! That’s amazing!

  7. Cute pics but false info. The bees aren’t sleeping in the flower.

    • Fals pics but cute info.

      Russians! Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

    • In general only the queen of the Bumblebees survivevthe winter inside a small hive

    • Curious? What are they really doing?

      if the air has a chill they will do this until it warms up. – signed; beekeeper in an area that may get a chill in the evening but will warm up in the mornings.

    • How do you even find these bees asleep in flowers?

    • You don’t. Those pics are just stills of collection worker bumblebees. Working hard for their pollen.

  8. They’re diving for nectar.

  9. I don’t respect any of you people.

  10. Wins award for funniest blog title.

  11. @bee tard you’re amazing!

  12. Bumblebees live underground…not in a hive….no queen.

    • Wrong. Don’t write BS when you have no clue about the world. Bumblebees have a queen. And a small hive. Underground was the only true fact of yours.

  14. Not millennials…BaBee Boomers retiring early on fat pensions, with plenty of pollen to spare 🐝
