Safe Atherton BumbleBee Control
The buzz of bumblebees is common to many UK gardens during the summer months. While one or two of these insects visiting is nothing to be concerned about, it is a different story if a colony set up home in your garden or property. If this is the case you do need to be concerned as bumblebees can be protective of their nests and pose a danger. Young’s Pest Control can help in this situation and our Atherton bumble bee control experts can deal with a nest to remove the danger.
Types of BumbleBee
Both native and invasive bumblebee species can be found living around the UK. There are over 20 native species, with some of the common types including the heath, common carder, buff-tailed, and garden bumble bees. Invasive species include tree bumble bees, with these first being recorded in the New Forest area at the beginning of the 2000s. They have quickly spread to other areas of the UK though and can be hardier than native species.
Bumblebees can build nests in many locations around a property. This can include underground burrows, overturned plant pots, and cavities in a property wall. As their name suggests, tree bumblebees are more likely to choose a hollow in a tree to build a nest although they can also be attracted to bird boxes. A nest will be started by a queen in early spring and grow in size over the following months. In most cases, the last one season and in the autumn young queens will emerge to go and hibernate then re-emerge the following spring to start the cycle again. Fully matured colonies can hold more than one hundred insects and the best way to deal with these is an Atherton bumble bee control treatment.
