Masonry bees are a common problem in homes and gardens as they physically burrow into the ground or take advantage of crevices and holes in a house’s structure to create a nest. If your home has a nest made by miner bees, the best thing to do is to get a local pest control company like Young’s to remove it, before further damage to your property is done. Miner bees do not tend to sting, however, particularly if you have young children around, the potential threat of a sting from a masonry bee should be one less thing to worry about. Additionally, after a day at work, coming home to a nest made by masonry bees is not pleasant and it is a problem which can be rectified simply and quickly thanks to Young’s Pest Control who are just a phone call away and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Bees in the UK are of several species. If you notice bees hovering around walls, or close to the ground, you may have masonry bees or miner bees.
- Miner bees burrow into the ground in order to lay their eggs. They could sting you if trodden on, and large numbers of these bees in your garden can be a nuisance.
- Masonry bees choose mortar joints, stone, brick or timber for their sites, so you may see several holes in walls or timber, especially in sunny locations. These holes can pose a threat to the fabric of your property.
