Irlam BumbleBee Control Treatments
Recently come over from mainland Europe, the tree bumblebee is an unwelcome newcomer to the UK, and significantly more likely than other bumblebee species to become a pest for a number of reasons:
- Tree bumblebees tend to nest above ground. Originally, their habitat was trees, but they happily take advantage of structures around the home, such as bird boxes, wall spaces, attics and dryer vents when looking for a place to start a nest.
- The tree bumblebee forms relatively large colonies and some of the drones keep watch over the nest, hovering around the entrance looking for potential dangers.
- The nest is very sensitive to vibration, and simple activities like re-potting plants, shutting doors and using tools can be enough to trigger a swarm of bees boiling out of the nest in search of a threat to attack.
- This species is more likely to attack than many common species.
Distinguished from common bumblebees by their black and ginger colouration, tree bumblebees pose a greater health risk because they are more likely to come into contact with people around the house, and can also cause a large amount of noise if they nest inside the house. Their nests can also clog vents, causing problems that way.
When any bumblebee builds a nest too close to home, an Irlam bumble bee control treatment is in order, but as anyone who has ever been stung knows, handling a beehive is a dangerous business. Most people don't have the knowledge, the right protective clothing or the experience to handle Irlam bumble bee control without being stung or otherwise injured. Bees die after stinging, but will happily sacrifice themselves to defend the nest and the queen if they think it is in danger. After stinging, the barbed stinger remains stuck in the victim and continues to pump venom after the bee has flown away. Locating and removing the stinger can be difficult and painful, but for some people, life-threatening allergies to bee venom make getting stung even more serious.
No matter what species of bumblebee is causing the problem or where the nest is located, calling in experts with experience in Irlam bumblebee removal is the best way to deal with the problem. Irlam bumblebee control techniques used by experts ensure that the queen is removed, and the problem is dealt with safely and effectively.
