It's that time of year the bees and wasp calls start flooding in
Here's some useful info on the Bumblebees and how to identify them
For more information foto our website on link below

How to identify: the Tree Bumblebee
Scientific name: Bombus hypnorum

Why are we looking for it?

It’s been a decade since the Tree Bumblebee arrived in the UK under its own steam, and in that time it has spread rapidly. Help us to map how far north and west it has spread and where it is now found.
It doesn’t appear to be damaging any of our native bee populations and is a very effective pollinator, so it’s a welcome new arrival.

Tree Bumblebee

Identification features

bees with different roles in the colony are different sizes
workers and males are around 10-16mm long
queens can be up to 22mm long
colour pattern of orange, black, white, from head to tail
Identification tips

Could be confused with…
Other bumblebees which may look similar at first, but look out for the unique colour pattern described above. No other bee has this pattern.

Where can I find it?
Across much of England, but few have been recorded so far in the northwest and southwest of England, and the rest of the UK.

Tree Bumblebees live in a wide range of habitats and are often seen in urban areas, visiting even the smallest of gardens.

When can I find it?
The large queen bees emerge from hibernation in early spring. The smaller workers and males can be seen throughout the spring and summer.

Lifestyle

Tree Bumblebees eat nectar and pollen, preferring wide-open flowers such as daisies rather than narrow tube-like flowers such as foxgloves.

They nest in tree holes and other suitable structures including empty bird boxes. The queen lays eggs in spring. These hatch into worker bees, which are all female. The workers bring nectar and pollen to the nest to feed future broods of young. Sting-less males hatch during late spring and early summer, and mate with new queens. The new queens hibernate in autumn and winter, emerging the next spring to start a new generation of bees.

What does it do for us?

It’s a great pollinator, so is supporting our plant populations at a time when some other bumblebees are declining in numbers. It doesn’t seem to be causing any harm to our native bumblebees or other wildlife.

Interesting fact

The UK’s wildlife is constantly changing, with new arrivals turning up most years. If the climate continues to change, we can expect to see more and more species arriving and prospering. Although one or two highly invasive species do cause negative effects, it’s likely that most of these new species won’t have a negative impact on our native wildlife

Bee, Wasp or Ant nest? Locate the route of the problem with SWAT 24/7 Pest Control
April 07, 2017

It is the time of year when the weather is drastically improving but bees, wasps, ants and other insects can be a bit of a pain, especially if they decide to set up camp in or around your home. Queen bees for example emerge from hibernation during the cold winter months and start to build their new nests. They normally build their nests in places that can be very hard to reach. Such places may be lofts, cavity walls or underground areas.
