How Do Bumble Bees Fly?

Answer

Although, because of their big body and tiny wings, it is said that bumble bees should not be able to fly, they obviously do. Their tuny wings will beat at about 130 times per second, and they can fly a couple yards per second.

Bumblebees use their wings like helicopter blades. The bumblebee moves their wings about 200 times within a second. This allows the wings to move a large amount of air and is able to sustain flight.
