A bumblebee got into my apartment through an open door. We lost track of it after a few minutes, and it may have flown outside. How can we be sure?
We closed the door it came in to keep other critters out. We searched the whole apartment including each window and a vase of cut flowers. We have not heard or seen it for about 45 minutes. Do bumblebees stay "grounded" for that long during daytime hours, or do they only land for a minute or two and then keep flying? If they pause for a only couple minutes then I'll be confident it's gone because I haven't seen it, but if they stay still for long periods of time then it's possible it may still be lurking and I just haven't found it yet.
