It is not found in Egypt and is absent from high alpine levels, the deserts and the arid, sub-desertic steppes (Rasmont et al., 2008). [36], In their 2014 study published in Functional Ecology researchers using Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tagging technology on the bees, found that a sublethal exposure to either a neonicotinoid (imidacloprid) and/or a pyrethroid (?-cyhalothrin) over a four-week period caused an impairment of the bumblebee's ability to forage. B. terrestris has been introduced into New Zealand (e.g. It is one of the main species used in greenhouse pollination, and so can be found in many countries and areas where it is not native, such as Tasmania. Eventually they find a site to dig a “hibernaculum” where they will hibernate until the next spring, when they emerge, seek food — primarily to build up their ovaries — and soon seek a site to found a new nest. Both of these are distributed in various regions of Europe. Australian Journal of Zoology, 47(1):59-65. Distribution of bumble bees in New Zealand.

Moreover, it is a eusocial insect with an overlap of generations, a division of labor, and cooperative brood care. B. terrestris queens are 30-35 mm long; workers are more variable in size, ranging from 8-22 mm long; and males are similar in size and appearance to large workers. The queen can use pheromones to discourage the workers' inclination to invest more in these larvae, thereby ensuring that not too many become queens. {{filterDisplayName(filter)}} Duration. The bumblebee Bombus terrestris is a beneficial pollinator extensively used in tomato production. Queens that mated once and mated four times had a higher fitness than those that mated twice. Finding multiple mates might be energetically costly and expose the queen to higher predation risks. Everywhere it has been introduced, it is competing with native pollinators for nest sites and food resources, leading to a decrease of many native species (Hingston and McQuillan, 1998; 1999; Dafni and Schmida, 1996; Dafni, 1998; Hergstrom et al., 2002; Matsumura et al., 2004; Hingston, 2005; 2006; Inoue et al., 2007).

Experimental studies demonstrate that B. terrestris have equal levels of encapsulation in poor and stable environments. Bumble bee species present in the South Island of New Zealand. The tip of the abdomen is either buff or white. [19] However, kin theory states that in monandrous colonies, workers will be most closely related to their sisters (0.75) but are more closely related to their sons (0.50) than to their nephews (0.375) and least of all to their brothers (0.25), and would accordingly devote their resources. by Strickler K, Cane J H]. Bumble bees are among the most important pollinators of temperate zone plants because of their diverse body and proboscis sizes, ability to sonicate, dense pile, long activity periods, and adaptability to a wide variety of temperatures and climate types (Winter et al., 2006). Surprisingly, the immunocompetence, as measured by the ability to encapsulate a novel antigen, does not vary based on the local environment. Mon, 29/04/2013 - 09:08 #1. Pouvreau A, 2004.

Additionally, while queens may prefer multiple matings to ensure more genetic variability and viable offspring, workers are more closely related to full sisters than to paternal half sisters. Due to the variability in the switch point to male production from worker production of B. terrestris colonies, there are varying levels of sex ratios among nests.

The world bumble bee (Bombus) fauna consists of approximately 250 known species; most of them are found in temperate parts of the northern hemisphere. [28], While bees are highly adept at discrimination tasks, they are still limited by the magnitude of difference needed in hue to properly carry out these tests. Bombus terrestris, the buff-tailed bumblebee or large earth bumblebee, is one of the most numerous bumblebee species in Europe.It is one of the main species used in greenhouse pollination, and so can be found in many countries and areas where it is not native, such as Tasmania. Commercially-reared bumble bees can escape from greenhouses in relatively large proportions (Morandin et al., 2001) if growers are not cautious in preventing their accidental release. by Jones, C.E.\Little, R.J.].

These skills might take several days to develop, as memory does not always hold perfectly on a day-to-day basis, sometimes deteriorating overnight. > 10°C, Cold average temp. In late-switching colonies (where the competition point still occurs at the same time in the cycle), workers may start laying eggs when they detect a change in the queen's pheromone that indicate larvae are developing into new queens. Bombus canariensis Pérez, 1895 n. stat and Bombus maderensis n. from the Macaronesian Islands. Krüger E, 1954. It is not found in Egypt and is absent from high alpine levels, the deserts and the arid, sub-desertic steppes (Rasmont et al., 2008). [36], In their 2014 study published in Functional Ecology researchers using Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tagging technology on the bees, found that a sublethal exposure to either a neonicotinoid (imidacloprid) and/or a pyrethroid (?-cyhalothrin) over a four-week period caused an impairment of the bumblebee's ability to forage. B. terrestris has been introduced into New Zealand (e.g. It is one of the main species used in greenhouse pollination, and so can be found in many countries and areas where it is not native, such as Tasmania. Eventually they find a site to dig a “hibernaculum” where they will hibernate until the next spring, when they emerge, seek food — primarily to build up their ovaries — and soon seek a site to found a new nest. Both of these are distributed in various regions of Europe. Australian Journal of Zoology, 47(1):59-65. Distribution of bumble bees in New Zealand. [11] Workers, an entirely female caste, mainly forage for food, defend the colony, and tend to the growing larvae. It is also part of the subfamily Apinae. Dag A; Kammer Y, 2001. The mechanism through which the queen induces this behavior is likely through pheromones. Carmel where the range of B.terrestris had expanded. [18], While the queen controls much of the egg laying and larval development in the colony, it is likely that workers play a much bigger role in controlling egg laying than previously thought. The first bumble bees to be seen in spring are the queens – the queen is the only bumble bee to hibernate through the winter.

The colony persists until fall in temperate zones and then workers begin to lay unfertilized eggs that if they mature will become males. Newly emerged workers start out at the bottom of the dominance hierarchy in the social colony. A solitary queen hatched from her abandoned colony initiates the colony cycle when she mates with a male and finds a nest. The queen then lays a small batch of eggs.

Does the recently introduced bumblebee Bombus terrestris (Apidae) threaten Australian ecosystems? In: How simple nervous systems create complex perceptual worlds [ed. However, B. terrestris is still widespread, likely because it can forage at very long distances, making it less sensitive to changes in biodiversity and the environment.

Canberra, Australia: Australian Government Publishing Service (AGPS), ix + 406 pp. 2.20.1.1 The Social Phases of the Bumblebee Colony Life Cycle. It is now widely domesticated and large numbers of colonies from different subspecies are transported from country to country (Velthuis, 2002). [English title not available]. Moreover, it is a eusocial insect with an overlap of generations, a division of labor, and cooperative brood care. B. terrestris queens are 30-35 mm long; workers are more variable in size, ranging from 8-22 mm long; and males are similar in size and appearance to large workers. The queen can use pheromones to discourage the workers' inclination to invest more in these larvae, thereby ensuring that not too many become queens. {{filterDisplayName(filter)}} Duration. The bumblebee Bombus terrestris is a beneficial pollinator extensively used in tomato production. Queens that mated once and mated four times had a higher fitness than those that mated twice. Finding multiple mates might be energetically costly and expose the queen to higher predation risks. Everywhere it has been introduced, it is competing with native pollinators for nest sites and food resources, leading to a decrease of many native species (Hingston and McQuillan, 1998; 1999; Dafni and Schmida, 1996; Dafni, 1998; Hergstrom et al., 2002; Matsumura et al., 2004; Hingston, 2005; 2006; Inoue et al., 2007). Gurr L, 1964. B. terrestris often does not conform to standard predictions of sex ratios based on evolutionary theory and haplodiploid theory. Once these hatch, she tends the larvae, feeding them with nectar and pollen. 30° to 60° N (Pekkarinen and Kaarnam, 1994). http://www.slideshare.net/Skalanes/university-of-glasgow-iceland-expedition-2008-presentation. 2.20.1.1 The Social Phases of the Bumblebee Colony Life Cycle. Evidence points to the fact that B. terrestris is able to naturalize easily, even with limited numbers of founding queens (Buttermore et al., 1998) and can spread quickly once introduced.

The queen is monandrouswhich means she mates with only one male. China, South Africa, the Canary Islands and Norway, do not allow B. terrestris to be imported either (Velthuis and van Doorn, 2006; Winter et al., 2006); the Japanese government has included B. terrestris in its Invasive Alien Species Act (Velthuis and van Doorn, 2006).

When several references are cited, they may give conflicting information on the status. This suggests that foragers have compromised immune systems due to increased energetic expenses and might be predisposed to fly parasites.[35]. [46], Since 1987, B. terrestris has been bred commercially for use as a pollinator in European greenhouse crops, particularly tomatoes—a task which was previously carried out by human hand.

The only management strategy is through exclusion and restriction of importation into new areas or countries where it is not endemic and can impact on the local environment. Bumble bees are adapted to a diversity of climates and habitats, and are active even when light intensity is low. Estoup A, Solignac M, Cornuet J-M, Goudet J, Scholl A, 1996. Once these hatch, she tends the larvae, feeding them with nectar and pollen.

Experimental studies demonstrate that B. terrestris have equal levels of encapsulation in poor and stable environments. Bumble bee species present in the South Island of New Zealand. The tip of the abdomen is either buff or white. [19] However, kin theory states that in monandrous colonies, workers will be most closely related to their sisters (0.75) but are more closely related to their sons (0.50) than to their nephews (0.375) and least of all to their brothers (0.25), and would accordingly devote their resources. by Strickler K, Cane J H]. Bumble bees are among the most important pollinators of temperate zone plants because of their diverse body and proboscis sizes, ability to sonicate, dense pile, long activity periods, and adaptability to a wide variety of temperatures and climate types (Winter et al., 2006). Surprisingly, the immunocompetence, as measured by the ability to encapsulate a novel antigen, does not vary based on the local environment. Mon, 29/04/2013 - 09:08 #1. Pouvreau A, 2004. Workers have white-ended abdomens, and look just like workers of the white-tailed bumblebee, B. lucorum, a close relative, apart from the yellowish bands of B. terrestris being darker in direct comparison. Inoue M N, Yokoyama J, Washitani I, 2008. "Parasites in Social Insects" Princeton University Press. This has been demonstrated in B. terrestris, where bees trained on artificially colored flowers will pick a similar color to the one they were trained with when tested with an array of flower choices. Genetic differentiation of continental and island populations of Bombus terrestris (Hymenoptera: Apidae) in Europe. Almost always the old colony will have died out, and if the site is free of parasites one of the new queens will return and reuse that site. The burs are hard and bear two to four sharp spines, 10 mm (0.39 in) long and 4–6 mm (0.16–0.24 in) broad point-to-point. Heredity, 81(5):563-572.
