Bumble bees are beneficial pollinating 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.
Sometimes bumble bees will build their nest in the sub-floors, roof voids of houses or other inappropriate place. If the nest cannot be accessed or moved then it may be necessary to destroy the colony.
Bumble bees are regarded as beneficial pollinating insects. Only if a bumble bee colony is in an inappropriate place should destruction be considered.
