Bumble Bees Can Be a Serious Threat
Although many people think of wasps and hornets as more dangerous than bees, for people with bee allergies bumble bees can be a life-threatening problem. Bees are generally more reluctant to sting than wasps because they lose their stingers and die after attacking, but if sacrificing themselves means protecting the queen and the nest, they will do so. Tree bumble bees in particular are aggressive and will patrol the nest and attack if it disturbed, even by something as seemingly innocuous and shutting a door.
Relatively new in Britain, tree bumble bees are native to mainland Europe and have a distinctive ginger colouration instead of yellow stripes. They are responsible for the increase in bumble bee problems that many beekeeper’s associations and pest control companies have noticed in recent years – this species likes to nest above ground in trees and in or around houses, sheds and other structures that people use. This brings them into closer contact with people and combined with their aggressive temperament makes them more likely to sting.
Bumble Bees Cause Problems for Homeowners
Bumble bees, especially tree bumble bees, will nest in any sheltered area they can get into that is about the right size. Often this means the interior space in a wall, an attic or any other opening to the outside of the house. Ventilation holes can become completely clogged with bees and their hives, creating a fire hazard and affecting air quality indoors. Colonies can make a fair bit of noise, causing sleep disruption and general irritation.
