When you’re not on X, previously often called Twitter, you missed this very informative thread in regards to the purpose why native bumblebees sleep on flowers in July (and August).

The thread was posted on 22 July by The Bee Man @the_beeguy, Paul Handrick, describing the conduct of untamed bees in late summer time. It catapulted him to fame and prompted an article in The Irish Instances Journal about The Bee Sanctuary of Ireland, based by Handrick and his spouse Claire-Louise Donelan. It’s the one wild bee sanctuary on the planet. (See it here on Facebook)

The social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, is in flux so I don’t understand how lengthy his thread can be obtainable. (I’ve observed that it typically takes some time for the tweets to return in.) Learn it whilst you can! It’s price it. … And take a look at The Bee Sanctuary of Ireland on the net.
