Read full entry
The yellowbanded bumble bee (Bombus terricola) was historically found throughout the eastern and upper midwestern United States, as well as in most of southern Canada. However, populations have declined dramatically in the last decade.

Yellowbanded bumble bees are primarily black, with queens and workers having some yellow on the thorax and abdomen. Workers have a fringe of brownish-yellow hairs on the abdomen. Males resemble queens and workers but additionally have pale yellowish hair on the face and top of the head.
