Can my bumblebees be safely removed?
Bumblebee removal depends on several factors. For example, where the nest is, if they’re in a cavity wall, then it is possible to remove the bees nest but at additional costs. For example, we might need access via scaffolding or a cherry picker. Also, there will be additional building costs as we will need to remove some bricks to get the bees out.
Lucky enough, bumblebees nests, once treated and not removed, generally don’t cause any further problems sometimes; bumblebees will reuse their old nests.

Bumblebees are not covered in the UK. We have a duty of care, though, as if we didn’t have any bees, we wouldn’t have any flowers and crops. Sometimes bumblebees have to be killed and controlled as they do sting and can cause serious health problems. If you were to be stung
bumblebees and not as aggressive as wasps, but they will still sting so, please bear that in mind if you have people or animals around the area where the nest is if the nest is located away from people and animals and it’s not causing any harm it’s best to leave the bees as they’re good for pollination
