Yellow-faced bumble bee

6822.       This huge (twice the size of a bumble bee) bee was digging a tunnel in our back flower bed on Mother’s Day, 2020. Is it a Carpenter Bee? Thanks for your attention… Delta, British Columbia. Canada

Number 6822. Looks like a yellow-faced bumble bee, Bombus vosnesenskii (Hymenoptera: Apidae);  Click here

    Thanks so much for the info…I am assuming from the size and the activity that this must be a Queen…?
