The answer could depend on who is reading this post.
According to scientists, the male bumblebee makes no effort to remember where it grew up as it leaves home to commence life as an adult bachelor. However, when it leaves a newly discovered flower, it would look back to remember the flower and the location so it can find it again.
In contrast, the female worker bumblebee memorises the locations both of its nest and the flowers from which it finds nectar and pollen.
While this observation was made by researchers studying the flight behaviour of male bumblebees, other research conducted suggest they may also have a more challenging role than their female counterparts. They do more than just mate after they have left their natal nest.
To avoid inbreeding, a male bumblebee will travel far from its nest without returning, to live as a solitary forager.
To find a queen to mate with is no easy task. It must patrol stable routes, learn them and deposit pheromones on plants along the way to attract females.
