On final approach, a Sitka bumblebee zooms toward a flowering rhododendron for multiple nectar stops last week in Snoqualmie. Bumblebees make honey but in very small amounts, about the size of a thimble, because their colonies are active only a few months, according to University of Washington biology professor Evan Sugden. The Bombus sitkensis species range from Northern California, along the coast, to British Columbia; even Northern Idaho. They tend not to be in dense urban areas, according to Sugden. which could explain why this one works on the Eastside.
