Nantwich BumbleBee Control
Why Are Bumble Bees a Problem?
Like any other stinging insect, bumblebees cause painful swelling and burning sensations when they sting. For some people, they carry the risk of triggering a serious, even life-threatening allergic reaction that requires medical intervention right away. Pets like cats and dogs can also be allergic to bee stings, and the slow flight of the bumblebee, who often stays close to the ground, makes them curious enough to investigate. Even if people and pets in the area manage to avoid being stung, bumblebees can also clog up vents and take up residence inside manufactured structures like buildings, creating a nuisance. Bumblebees play an important role in the ecosystem, but they are simply a problem in a house or office building.
How to Identify BumbleBees
Many people confuse bumblebees with other bee species, wasps or hornets. Like these other groups, many bumblebee species are black with yellow stripes, and they have a furry appearance. Some species, like tree bumblebees, are not stripped but have a patch of orange-coloured "fur" on their thorax. Bumblebees form large colonies around a queen inside a nest that they build. Tree bumblebees are especially protective of their nests, being set off by the slightest vibration and attacking anything nearby that might be a threat. Clients who are unsure if they have an infestation of bumblebees or which sort of bumblebee is causing them problems are advised to call Young's Pest Control for an expert opinion.
What's the Best Way to Get Rid of BumbleBees?
Without a doubt, the best way to handle bumblebees is to remove or destroy the nest, and Nantwich bumble bee control is best done by experienced individuals like the technicians from Young's Pest Removal. Bumblebee nests can be either relocated to a safe area or destroyed if moving them is not possible or safe. Experts are the best ones to assess which method of Nantwich bumble bee control should be used. Nantwich bumble bee removal can provoke the bees in and around the nest to attack, so proper bee handling techniques and safety precautions are needed, especially if the nest is large or hard to get access to.
