Happenings in the insect world

There is a strange and beautiful bumble bee squad nesting in the old bird house on my porch. It has a rust band, yellow and black. I looked it up and it may be the rusty patch bumble bee. I've never seen one before. Apparently they are declining. What can I do to protect or encourage it? I know nothing about bees. I may contact a local beekeeping supply store here in Gladstone Oregon. We are near Portland. Maybe the Xerces society here in Portland would like to know? Please advise. Thank you
