scientific name

Bombus terrestris (Linnaeus, 1758)
status

 

Bombus terrestris (Linnaeus, 1758) 

Species almost cosmopolitan, with a distribution that extends from northern Europe to north Africa and from central Asia to the Macaronesia, naturally distributed from 0 to 3000 m ( Ornosa & Ortiz-Sánchez 2004). It has become increasingly important commercially for its pollination services to agriculture. This commercial translocation has resulted in its introduction and invasion in South America, New Zealand, Tasmania and Japan ( Williams et al. 2012). This bee is not regarded as being scarce or threatened (Rasmont et al. 2015).
