Maghull BumbleBee Control
If it seems like bumblebees are becoming a pest more frequently than they used to, it's because of the European tree bumblebee. Native species of bumblebee nest in all sorts of places, but commonly underground, and are less likely to cause problems unless people or pets get too close to their home. Tree bumblebees on the other hand like to nest above ground, whether at approximately person-height in trees or in man-made structures like buildings.
This makes them much more likely to cross paths with people, and their more aggressive disposition makes them more likely to sting when they do. In addition, they are very sensitive to any vibrations that disturb the nest, and post sentries which patrol the nest area - this makes it very easy to accidentally disturb the nest and provoke an attack. Many people don't even know the bees are there until a slammed door or dropped object provokes a swarm.
BumbleBees as Pests
Although the tree bumblebee is the mostly like bee species to cause problems, any species of bumblebee can become a pest if it nests in the wrong area: bees nesting in the attic or the interior space of walls can cause damage to the building if the hive becomes very large and can be an irritating source of a constant buzzing or humming sound. Bees nesting in openings such as a tumble dryer vent can clog up the vent and may also cause a fire hazard. Of course, any stinging insect living near people is a safety risk and bumblebees are no exception. Bumblebees lose their stinger when they attack, meaning that it remains stuck in the skin and continues to pump venom even after the bee has flown off and died. A significant percentage of people are allergic to bee venom and will require prompt medical attention if stung.
