“…Bombus terrestris and B. pascuorum species remain abundant in the study area, and are not considered threatened according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (Rasmont et al, 2015). Individuals were sampled with nets while foraging on flowers during August 2013 with dry weather (above 18 ºC) and clear weather conditions, and preserved in 100% ethanol at -4 ºC.…”

“…The presence of flowering plants is, therefore, a necessity for bumblebee colony growth. However, a decline in bumblebee abundance and species richness has been observed for over 30 years (Goulson et al, 2005;Peters, 1972;Potts et al, 2010;Pawlikowski & Pawlikowski, 2012;Rasmont et al, 2015). This decline indicates a disturbance in the wildlife corridor.…”

“…As a result, the decline in pollinators threatens the pollination service they offer ) and consequently ecosystem functioning (Biesmeijer et al 2006, Klein et al 2007Potts et al 2010Ollerton et al 2011, human well-being and crop production Klein et al 2007, Ricketts et al 2008, Potts et al 2010, Garibaldi et al 2013. Indeed, 75% of cultivated plant species worldwide rely (more or less) on insects, particularly wild bees, for fruit and seed production (Klein et al 2007).…”

“…In Belgium, this loss was first recorded during the 1980s (Leclercq et al 1980, Rasmont andMersch 1988), in response to increasing agricultural intensification and urbanization. More specifically, several factors are generally mentioned to be responsible of the decline in pollinators (Goulson et al 2015), including: climate change (Rasmont et al 2015), the increase in agricultural land area, the homogenization of cultured species (Benton et al 2003), the increasing use of chemicals (Blacquière et al 2012), the reduction of (semi-)natural habitat area (Steffan-Dewenter et al 2006Kremen andChaplin-Kramer 2007), the loss of genetic diversity , Maebe et al 2012, Jha and Kremen 2013, parasite and pathogen development (Cameron et al 2011, Arbetman et al 2013) and the reduction of floral resources availability (Kleijn and Raemakers 2008Lonsdorf et al 2009, Goulson et al 2015.…”
