years ago i read about the cuckoo bumble bee and learned that they lay their eggs in other nests, hence the name - is this bee also doing that?

wonderful work, adorable precision...

:clap:

I didn't know that, it's interesting. I actually found it while searching for a random bee photo, and I don't know much about it. That's why I don't want to misinform you. Thank you very much for your nice comment :)

It seems that they know much more about this than I do. I only watch documentaries sometimes. Maybe they have the answer you're looking for, greetings! wave remake
