Bumblebees stings and bites

Bumblebees are both able to sting and bite humans. The bumblebee is generally not strong enough to cause significant pain to most humans and the mandibles have no real ability to pierce the skin. However, the worker females and queens bumblebees can sting. They also lack barbs on their stinger so that they are able to sting repeatedly unlike the honeybee. Generally, bumblebees will not sting but they may do so if they nest is disturbed.

Identifying bumblebees

There are 24 different species of bumblebees in the United Kingdom. Bumblebees feed on pollen and nectar from inside flowers. This nectar is a sugary liquid which gives the bumble bees energy. Bumblebees eat the pollen because it is full of protein which allows their bodies to grow. In recent years tree bumblebees have become one of the more common species found in the United Kingdom. Tree bumblebees tend to be more aggressive than many other local bumblebee species. If a tree bumblebee hive is located in your garden or home you should call a Macclesfield bumble bee control specialist straight away. Tree bumblebees will often set up their hives inside of bird boxes and sometimes very close to people's homes.

Bumblebee colonies

Bumblebees live in colonies which are ruled by a Queen. There can be up to 400 bumble bees in a single bumblebee hive. Once the weather becomes warmer the Queen bumblebees leave hibernation and begin to build a nest. The first group of bumblebees produced by the new colony will be female worker bees. It is the female worker bumble bees which protect the nest and collect nectar and pollen for the colony. From this point on the Queen bumblebees only job is to continue laying eggs.
