Ince in Makerfield BumbleBee Control
Bumblebees are often one of the first insects out and about in springtime and can be very useful, but anyone who has ever been stung by one knows that they can also be a pest and even a serious health threat for people with bee allergies. Although many bumble bees nest underground in natural areas, it is not uncommon for some species to nest too close to the house, or even inside it, causing trouble for those who live there. When such a nest is found, the best approach to take is to leave the job of Ince in Makerfield bumble bee control to professionals like Young's Pest Control, who have experience with bumble bee removal, full-time service hours, and affordable rates.
Britain has many species of bumblebee, and one of the most troublesome is the tree bumblebee. A recent newcomer from Europe, this species is more likely to cause problems because of its tendency to nest above ground in trees and sheltered areas like bird boxes that tend to be near houses. Combined with their behaviour or actively patrolling the nest site and swarming out in response to vibration, they can pose quite a hazard for anyone unlucky enough to be playing host to them. Tree bumblebees can also clog up vents and dryer outlets if they build nests there, which is not uncommon and practically impossible for the average person to deal with.
Bumblebees, in general, are reluctant to sting because doing so means losing their stinger and eventually dying, but they will sting readily to defend their hive and queen. The tree bumblebees are particularly aggressive about defending their nest and can come swarming out of the hive in response to a door slamming or other actions which vibrate the structure the nest is built on. Anyone who has been stung by a bee knows how painful and unpleasant it is. Removing the stinger, which is barbed and remains embedded in the skin, is difficult, and there is a risk of serious allergic reactions for some people.
Gaining access to a nest for Ince in Makerfield bumblebee control can be difficult, and attempting any sort of bumblebee removal treatment - relocation or chemical treatment - without bee handling knowledge can be dangerous. Our professionals are experienced with Ince in Makerfield bumblebee control techniques and know how to get the job done right, quickly and safely.
