The bumble bee is probably one of the better pollinators of milkweed because its thick legs are good at pulling out and inserting pollinia. I read at recently that some bumble bees, like the rusty patch bumble bee, are associated with milkweed. That makes me wonder if milkweed restoration will help the endangered rusty patch?
