Waltham Cross pest control- Bees
If you have a bee nest you will probably see bees entering a hole in the ground, a wall or roof. Where they nest often depends on the species. It may not be necessary to destroy the nest. It may be possible in some cases to remove the nest. The operator will be able to tell you what sort of bees they are, usual species include Bumble Bees, Honey Bees Masonry or Mining bees. There are also sub species of wild bees within these groups.
The types of Bees most commonly encountered within Waltham Cross will include-
- Honey Bees: the nest will have thousands of bees and they will swarm around the entrance of their nest. Commonly these are in chimneys however they will use any cavity. A swarm if met, is when part of a hive splits and a Queen accompanied by drones and several thousand workers will look for a new nest site.
- Bumble Bees: These are the largest of bees seen and usually nest in the ground or in places such as compost heaps. Recently they have been found using lofts. Generally they are not aggressive although they can sting.
- Mason/Mining Bees: These types of bees will be seen entering many holes in the ground or in brick mortar. There is no Queen as all the females of this type lay eggs.
