Bumble Bees Indoors
Bumble bees are beneficial insects. They are large round hairy bees that are often seen feeding at flowers in a garden.
Bumble Bees are generally harmless, only using their sting when heavily provoked and are found in much smaller colonies than honey bees.
The Solitary Bees do not form colonies, but may be found nesting in some numbers at a good nest site. Solitary bees are not aggressive and possess only a weak sting that rarely penetrates human skin.
Bumble bees are regarded as beneficial pollinating insects. Only if a bumble bee colony is in an inappropriate place should it be destroyed.
Nests > Only control bumble bees as a last resort. The nests of bumble bees generally have only one entrance/exit. If this can be identified the colony can be destroyed by sprinkling or puffing the apicide into the entrance. The workers will then pick up the dust as they enter the nest and take it inside where it will kill larvae and queens.
Preventing Winter Damage to Plants
In mild areas of New Zealand, tender plants can survive over winter outside with some protective coverings. But in cold or exposed areas even hardy plants may need some protection from the cold and wind.
