Raul,

I’m pretty sure it is Bombus melanopygus, but the bumbles are so hard to tell apart I hesitate to name them.

I think you are right! I started looking into it after you said you had a hard time identifying them. I said it’s a bumble bee…. what’s to identify?! Until I googled them. Holy smokes.

Is vinca okay for bees and butterflies? It is invasive.

Phyllis,

It’s probably fine and I have not heard otherwise. In any case, bees and butterflies don’t seem very interested in it.

I saw a bumblebee on the vinca this morning and a butterfly bouncing around it a few days ago.

Phyllis,

Two insects simply means they were examining it. When you see hundreds all over it, let me know.
