Pest Database - Bumble Bees

Bumble bees are beneficial insects because they pollinate crops and plants.  

Habits

The occupant of a disturbed bumble bee nest will buzz in a loud volume. They defend their nests aggressively. Habitat Bumble bees often nest in the ground, but can be found above ground around patio areas or decks. They will sometimes build their nest in soffits of attics. Threats As part of their aggressive defense of their nests, bumble bees will chase nest invaders for a considerable distance. The bumble bee sting is one of the most painful. Unlike honey bees, bumble bees can sting more than once. Prevention Bumble bees can be prevented through inspection of potential nesting areas and removal of potential harborage materials. Because bumble bees will sting when threatened, homeowners are advised not to address the infestation themselves.
