The species density, and the situation, construction, and fate of humble-bee nests in England, whence the species now present in New Zealand have come, are described. Factors that may determine populations of humble-bees in New Zealand are discussed in the light of present knowledge of factors that govern the size of nests in England. Methods are described by which further species for shipment to New Zealand may be, and have been, collected.
