Fact Sheet

 

Petition from the Xerces Society

From petition: The rusty patched bumble bee was historically common from the Upper Midwest to the eastern seaboard, but in recent years it has been lost from more than three quarters of its historic range and its relative abundance has declined by ninety-five percent.

 

Occasionally nests of the rusty patched bumble bee have been observed above ground. However, nests are usually one to four feet below ground in abandoned rodent nests or other cavities. This species has been observed or collected from woodlands, marshes, agricultural landscapes, and, more recently from residential parks and gardens.
