Bristol Bumblebee Control

Bristol is home to two species of bumble bee that pose a particular threat to safety. Control of native bumblebees is a last resort, but is legally available.

The two bee species are the European Tree Bumble Bee (B hypnorum) and the White Tailed Bumble Bee (B lucorum). The reason for this is simple – they produce huge colonies and most people are wrongly taught that bumble bees don’t sting!

Bumble bees will sting if attacked or disturbed at scale. The European tree Bumble Bee tends to get disturbed in June and July when people accidentally disturb them in attics or roofers and builders disturb them.

The Whit-Tailed Bumble Bee is usually disturbed when working in or around sheds or concrete paths under which they have nested.

Can Bumble Bees Be Relocated?

Unfortunately our experience of schemes to move bees is not great. Many people claim to offer a free service, but getting a large bees nest out of a loft or out from under a shed is rarely a simple task. If you find someone willing to this for you – fantastic, because this is the most desirable outcome if relocated successfully.

How Are Bumble Bees Treated?

Bumblebees are treated with a variety of pesticides, but Ficam D is probably the most common pesticide of choice. Ficam D is insecticidal dust that coats the insect. Ensure your service is guaranteed though. Bumble bees seem to know that this pesticide makes them sick, and avoid it!

The most aggressive bees from our experience is Bombus hypnorum. Colony size can reach well over a thousand insects. The noise produced by these bees on your ceiling is often so loud it prevents people sleeping. Beware, because nests are hidden beneath loft insulation.

Tapping on the joists will often reveal the location of the bees. You will know the noise when you hear it! A very loud rumbling buzz will vibrate the floor. Always be sure to have a safe, clear and easy route out of an attic. People have been killed by falls and stings for being attacked in a loft space, before falling through the hatch or ceiling. stay safe, Call Us!

Are Bumble Bees Protected?

No! Bumble bees are not protected and most providers will tell you they are protected to get you off the phone quickly. Control of nuisance bees is a last resort and we don’t enjoy this process, but necessity sometimes demands it on grounds of safety.

We are here to help, so please let us know if you decide control is unavoidable and we will take great care to complete the treatment as safely and quickly as possible.

Why Get Rid Of Wasps?

Wasps are among the most maligned insect pests we are required to control and it’s little wonder that this is the case. 

Many wasps nest contain upwards of three thousand insects at maturity and a sudden attack from a mature nest is both terrifying and medically critical.

Wasps nests situated in an area where the flow of wasps in and out of the nest is interrupted should be considered dangerous. 

Breaking the invisible flight line to and from a nest is seen as a direct threat to the colony. Nests in areas where the nest is unlikely to be interfered with can safely be left to complete their yearly cycle in peace
