Sister Stingers – Bumblebee vs. Honeybee

“We Are Family!”

Both honeybees and bumblebees are part of the order Hymenoptera and the family Apidae. From there, bumblebees branch off into the genus Bombus, while honeybees are members of the Apis genus. Both of these little buzzers are social creatures that live in nests with hundreds of their brethren, collect and store nectar, and fly about the air in search of flowers.
