Bumble bees, in general, are not aggressive in that they are unlikely to swarm, unless their nest is threatened. You typically should not be afraid of having a bumble bee nest on your property and there can actually be some benefits of them being around your garden, in that they can help pollinate your flowers and fruits. Care should be taken, however as the female bumble bees, including the queen and female worker bees, can and will sting if they feel their nest is being threatened. Indeed, female bumble bees can sting over and over again, unlike their cousins the honey bee who die when they use their sting. As such, it is essential that bumble bee removal is handled by professionals, who know how to handle bumble bees to prevent the dangers of multiple stings.
Bumble bees tend to be bigger and rounder than their cousins, the honey bee and they are also usually hairier. This difference in body shapes allow them to be out on colder days than other types of bees, looking for food, so you are likely to see bumble bees around much earlier and later into the warmer season. Indeed, the queen bumble bee usually begins to hibernate when the first frosts occur in late autumn and can be seen flying around as soon as the warmer weather begins in spring. The queen will begin to look for a site for her nest once she is out of hibernation, and this could be anywhere on your property from hedge bottoms, under stones or in your shed. The nests do tend to be small, usually around the size of a grapefruit and is made of wax and pollen.
Although bumble bees are relatively harmless and mostly the benefits of having them around outweighs the dangers, there are times when the location that the queen chooses for her nest turns the insects into pests.
