About this book

British Bumblebees covers all mainland species, but tables have special emphasis on the County of Somerset. British Bumblebees contains descriptions and drawings showing all species and their variations, nesting habits, sizes, abundance and where they are likely to be found. Comprehensive and simple to use, it is another attempt to help people with the tricky points of identification of this difficult family. The problem is that they look easy to pick out by the colour of the bands, but these are astonishingly variable, while many other features must be taken into account.
