Professional Tyldesley BumbleBee Control Services
Why Call in Professional Help?
Bumblebees are a familiar animal, and many people don't realize they can be a serious pest. While it's true that the odd bumblebee flying around the garden can be easily avoided, bumblebees can cause problems when they nest too near to where people spend a lot of time. With the recent introduction of the European Tree BumbleBee, this is becoming more and more common. Professional Tyldesley bumblebee control is a good idea when bumblebees form a nest too close to home, creating a health hazard because of stings and allergies, causing irritation from noise, and causing building damage. Professionals like Young's Pest Control have the training, equipment and experience to handle any Tyldesley bumblebee removal project, no matter how hard to reach it is or how angry the bees might be.
Threats from BumbleBees
The most obvious threat from bumblebees is a sting. Curious children and pets are often stung investigating these relatively slow-moving insects as they go about their business, and adults are also at risk. A certain percentage of people who are stung will be allergic, and the symptoms they experience can be severe and even lethal if not treated promptly. Bees leave their stinger embedded in the skin after stinging, and it continues to pump venom until it is removed, which is difficult because of the barbed tip. Leaving their stinger behind ultimately kills the bee, but bees will sacrifice themselves to protect the hive.
Tree bumblebees are particularly aggressive and respond to vibrations - like a door shutting - by emerging from the nest and looking for enemies. They also post sentries who patrol the nest area, making a sting even more likely from this species. Bumblebees also cause noise problems if they nest an attic or wall space. Colonies can grow to several hundred individuals, and the constant buzzing noise can be maddening. Large colonies can also cause damage to the building if they get heavy enough, and colonies can also block off ventilation ducts. Tree bumblebees are particularly notorious for this.
Tyldesley bumble bee control can mean either treating the nest with chemicals or moving it to a far away location if possible. Both methods should only be done by experienced professionals like the friendly staff at Young's Pest Control, who can handle the job safely and get it done right.
