Dukinfield BumbleBee Control Treatment

Tree Bumble Bee Tree BumbleBee

Tree bumblebees are a particularly invasive species of bee, who have found their way to our island from continental Europe. This species of bumblebee are known for being particularly aggressive, particularly if they are protecting their nests, which can often be your highly prized bird boxes. They also differ from our native species in that they can, and will sting as often as they wish. Usually, when we are talking about native species we advise to leave any nests on your property alone as our native bumblebees are fairly docile and will not cause you any harm, but if you have a tree bumblebee nest you may wish to consider professional Dukinfield bumble bee control.

How to identify tree bumblebees

This bee can be easily recognised by its tri-coloured banding. They have a reddish colour head, a grey/black abdomen and a whitetail.

We can help you identify the species of bee and offer advice on Dukinfield bumblebee removal.
