Pest World for Kids: What Does a Queen Bee Look Like?

Have you ever heard buzzing noises when playing outside near flowers? Chances are, you probably heard bumblebees collecting pollen.

Bees have very important jobs, and that job is regulated by a colony’s queen. Bumblebee queens are responsible for finding a new nest for her workers and creating new bees to populate the colony. Every spring, the queen comes out of her long hibernation to feed and build her colony. If you’re not sure what a queen bee looks like, it can be hard to distinguish her from the rest of her colony.
