Warrington BumbleBee Control Services
You might not have heard of tree bumblebees before because they are a relatively new species to us, having arrived on our shores from Continental Europe during the last decade. Despite its only recent introduction to our island, the population of these bumble bees is growing rapidly and they have managed to spread out across all of the United Kingdom. They are often found in urban areas, so it is not uncommon for them to nest in gardens. Tree bumblebees, are not as docile as our native species and can act aggressively, particularly if their nest is disturbed, so if you do spot a nest on your property you may wish to consider Warrington bumble bee control.
Where do tree bumble bees nest?
These bumblebees like to nest in tree holes or in bird nesting boxes, in fact, they have been known to force birds out in order to take over a box. Nests have also been spotted in the soffits of homes. If you spot a nest anywhere on your property, and you suspect it belongs to a tree bumblebee, please do not approach it as the bees can become very aggressive and will sting to protect their nest. It might be tempting, if they have nested in your bird box to simply attempt to remove the box from your property, this is dangerous, however, and could lead to a number of stings. Please call us and we can discuss Warrington bumble bee control with you.
How do I know if I have a tree bumblebee problem?
The tree bumblebee is tri-striped turning from orange to black to white from its head to its tail. This pattern is very different from our native bumble bees so should make identifying them easy. If you spot them in early spring, this is also a strong sign that you have a tree bumblebee nest, as they are often the first bees out of hibernation after winter. If you are unsure, you can always call us for assistance with identification. If we confirm that the species present on your property is that of a tree bumblebee, we can then discuss and carry out safe Warrington bumble bee removal with you and offer advice on the best ways to prevent this species from returning to your garden in the future.
