A bumblebee (also written bumble bee) is a member of the genus Bombus, part of Apidae, one of the bee families.
For the first time in the history of the continental United States, a species of bumble bee that was once a common sight across much of the nation has been declared an endangered species.
The rusty patched bumble bee was abundant across 28 states from Connecticut to South Dakota and up into Canada just 20 years ago, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said, but is now "balancing precariously on the brink of extinction."
