do honeybees and bumblebees pollinate the same plants?

    They can if they are in the same area. Bees cannot see the color red, but do pick up lower wavelengths of light including yellow and blue. Because of this, they tend to pollinate a certain set or group of flowers depending on where the bees are found. Multiple bees pollinate multiple flowers and its no shock to see many different species of bee in the same area pollinating the same plant. The more pollinators a plant has the greater its chance of survival. There are however, some plants that have evolved to be pollinated by one specific species of insect but I’m not aware of any such relationship between bees and common North American flowers.
