Researchers in Florida recently claimed to have rediscovered a rare species of bee that has not been seen since it was last seen in 2016. Some people felt that it has become extinct. Indeed, the bee was accidentally discovered by researcher Chase Kimmel, who worked for the Florida Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida. In fact, he was working on another project earlier this year when he saw the blue Calaminta Bee. They did not know then that this bee is rare. They had just taken pictures of it in their camera because they did not like the blue bees.

Let us tell you that the blue bee was first listed in the conservation category by the Florida State Wildlife Action Plan, and was seen in only 16 square miles in four small areas of Central Florida. On this basis, later Chase Kimmel started researching it. In an interview to a channel, he told that it is still very rare and it may take many hours and days to find it. A team of researchers initially planned to send a large group of volunteers to collect data on the behavior of bees, but this was not possible due to the coronavirus epidemic. Chase Kimmel is the only researcher currently engaged in the search for the blue bee.

For information, let us tell you that there are more than 20 thousand species of bees worldwide. Blue bee has become rare among them. By the way, people are generally afraid of all kinds of bees so that they do not sting, but you will be surprised to know that most bees do not sting anyone. You will be more surprised to know that only the female bee stings, not the male bee.
