Bees & Honey Bee Swarms

Help Controlling Social & Solitary bees

Bees can cause terrible disruption in homes and business from late spring until late summer.

The most top three species of bee we are asked to help with include the Masonry Bee, Honey Bee and Bumble Bee. Various kinds of Mining Bee also cause problems, especially in late summer.

Masonry Bees – These love to burrow into soft mortar or cement. In small numbers, they are not a problem, but some can and will sting you.

Bumble Bees – The Tree Bumblebee is a big problem in Bristol. Tree bumblebees prefer to live in attics, lofts and crawl spaces where they nest between your loft insulation and ceiling.

A Bumble bee can deliver a nasty sting if disturbed, so don’t take chances with them.

Honey Bees – easily the best-known bee species. Honey bees are crop producers with honey becoming a premium health product. We are also beekeepers so can relocate most swarms without the need to destroy them.

As with all living creatures, the seasons and the climate all vary from year to year. This variation in prevailing weather conditions can affect insect numbers.

Variations in insect numbers are typical. One year masonry bee numbers are on the rise and the next year we see very few!

Differences in insect densities are the same for all insects – with each year’s winners and losers almost impossible to predict.

We have seen a rise in bee numbers in recent years and believed next we will be great for the growth of bee populations in Bristol.
