Why Get Rid of Bumble Bees?
Bumble bees are generally familiar as fairly harmless creatures flying around from flower to flower, but this is only part of the picture. The bumble bee is a social insect that will sacrifice itself to defend its nest and queen, and is equipped with a barbed stinger and toxic venom to help it do so.
After stinging, the bumble bee leaves its stinger behind in the victim, and it continues to deliver venom until it is removed. This venom triggers serious allergies in some, and painful burning welts in just about everyone.
In addition to stinging, bumble bees can be very noisy. People who have had bumble bees nest in the attic report loud buzzing sounds that are disruptive and stressful. Bumble bees can also create fire hazards, lower air quality by bringing allergens into the home, and even potentially damage structures that they nest in. Bird watchers have even reported tree bumble bees taking over bird boxes and driving away their feathered friends.
How to Get Rid of Bumble Bees
Bumble bee control can consist of either physically removing the nest to a more remote area where the bees can continue pollinating plants without causing problems, or destroying the nest and the queen, often with a chemical bumble bee nest removal treatment.
Regardless of the treatment, it should be performed by a trained expert with safety clothing in order to ensure it is done properly and that no one gets stung or injured.
