Denton BumbleBee Control Treatment

Bumblebees can easily be confused with honey bees. While collecting nectar and pollen around the garden, bumble bees seem to be quite different from their streamlined relatives who go about everywhere; they tend to be more gentle and slow. Tree bumblebees also sting and their nests should only be removed by bumble bee control experts. Young's Denton bumble bee control treatment works best.

What do bumblebees look like?

The body of a bumblebee is different from that of a normal bee. While her cousin looks more of a wasp, she is round and furrier. In a colony, you will find three different kinds of bumblebees; there is the large queen, the female worker who is small and not perfectly formed and the drone or male bee. Drones are, however, the only ones without a sting. You are likely to see the three at different seasons of the year, and Young's Denton bumble bee control experts will educate you more on how to differentiate them.

The lifecycle of tree bumblebees

 

At the onset of autumn, young queens will leave their colonies after mating and look for a place where they can hibernate safely. As spring appears, large queens then come out and fly around flowers and bulbs as they look for nectar and pollen for their food and honey. This happens after the queen has located a perfect place for her nest.

The large queen is the only one in the colony who lays eggs. She may however not fertilize all her eggs. Male drones normally develop from these unfertilized eggs containing only half of the genes that the workers or the queen have. Her eggs are laid in a round mound that is then sealed with wax. She then uses the bare part of her abdomen to pass heat to the eggs every day. When the larvae hatch, they have to find their way out by eating walls of the mound and come out as mature worker bees.

Where does a bumble bee nest?

There are more than 200 species of bumblebees and all of them look for different places to build their nests. In most cases, they can be found on trees, hedge bottoms, empty mouse holes, under wooden floors or large stones. Bumblebees can sting multiple times and thus the reason why you should let Young’s Denton bumble bee control professionals do the bumblebee removal job for you, especially if they are tree bumblebees.
