Bumblebee Removal in 2021

After such a tough 2020 and Andy deciding that this is FINALLY the year he semi-retires, we’re going to be cutting back on some of our non-essential work. This is to allow us some extra time to spend with our family and loved ones a year after barely seeing each other!

While we encourage you send in your Bee Removal forms and we will be looking over them all, we wont be replying to all of the Bumblebee Removal Requests, only those Bumblebee removals where it is both necessary and potentially an emergency. Some examples of this are;

  • Schools/Nurseries/Educational Establishments
  • Doctors/Hospitals etc.
  • Nursing/Care Homes
  • Where occupants are at risk

The majority of Bumblebee nests are perfectly harmless and safe, are not there forever and can be ignored and left until the bees have gone.

What About Honeybees?

Honeybees are slightly different to Bumblebees in that they’re not seasonal, they don’t just go away on their own and can cause quite a problem if left in a property. For this reason, we’ll be replying to and dealing with your Honeybee Removal Requests throughout the year, whether it’s an emergency or not.

What Do I Do With These Bees Then?

Don’t worry! We’re not just going to leave you hanging! While we wont be providing a removal service to all reported bumblebee colonies, we will be updating our website regularly to bring you blogs and posts with tonnes of information on about Bumblebees, why they’ve chosen where they’ve chosen and how to go about living with them (and when to call in some extra help).

You can always contact us via beemail@treebee.org.uk, however if you’re enquiring about Bee Removal, we recommend you use the Bee Removal Form, which can be found here.

    Hi we have bees in a bird box that is very close to the house. I’m worried about the risk to ourselves and our young grandchildren. Can you give us any advice about removal?
    Thanks

    Hi there, we are troubled by a bumble bee nest that is behind the bay window facia. We can not have any windows open without numerous bees entering our home and with a young kitten this is proving to be impossible. I do not want to have to get someone in to destroy it but as the weather is getting warmer we cannot continue like this. Could you make any suggestions please.
    Kind regards
    Andrea

      Hi,

      We are not dealing with bumblebee nest removals this year and to remove a bumblebee nest where it is would involve invasive work to the property.

      I would recommend leaving them until they finish naturally in August/September and purchasing fly screening to prevent the bees from entering open windows.

    Hi,
    I have honey bees in a redundant chimney that’s linked to our main bedroom. The chimney is accessible through the fireplace but capped off at the top, though the bees have found a way in under the cap. Wife/kids never stung before, so no idea of vulnerability. We cleared 100/day from the bedroom before taping up the fireplace entrance.
    They appeared in the room a week ago, and are active around the pot now. We don’t want to kill them but don’t have a bottomless pot of cash to dismantle the chimney (assuming we can find scaffolders who want to work with bees).
    All/any suggestions welcome. Ideally, we’d like to get them out, move them on, seal the pot again. We love bees, but sharing a bedroom long term not an option.

    I think we have tree bees, which are swarming at the side of the house under the eaves. There are a lot there flying up and down the side of our house and we have found a couple inside the house on a side attic window ledge. We have had no windows open so we know they are getting in through the cavity and into the house. We share a drive with our neighbour and they also have a nest in the guttering by the eaves of their home. They were there first and now are swarming by our house and getting in. Please can someone help us, my young daughter and myself do not like them.

      Hi,

      It sounds like you have harmless bumblebees, they don’t sting, they would only get aggressive if you were physically on the nest upsetting them, they don’t damage the property, they don’t swarm and they don’t create honey.

      The activity you have described as swarming is stingless male bees waiting to mate with females on the inside of the nest. These males are from other nests in the area and similarly males from your nest will be around other people’s houses. The bees have been there since about March and the only reason you’re really aware of the nest is because of the stingless males. The nest finishes naturally around August/September. I would recommend leaving the nest until it is finished, then completing work to seal up any gaps on your property.

      Hi,

      Unfortunately this year we are not dealing with bumblebee removals.

      With bumblebees, in order to remove them, you must be able to physically pick up the nest, which is why the quotes you are receiving are so high, because there would be some work that would have to go into the removal.

      Hi,
      As per the banner on our website we are not currently dealing with bumblebee removals. If you suspect that these bees are honeybees, please complete a bee removal form on our website.
