We were called into a property in Northwood, Middlesex that had a problem with Tree bumble bees nesting inside a bird box, which unfortunately was very near an area where the clients grand-children played.
We advised the client who was very concerned, that we could, move the whole bird box, to a safer, more remote part of the garden, where the bumble bees would not bother anyone, and that no treatment was needed.
We couldn’t move the bumble bees right away, as they were still very active, so went back to the property after dusk, when the bees were all happily inside the nest, plugged up the holes, and carried the bird box gently to the new location.
Went back to the property the following day, and was delighted to see the bumble bees, coming and going quite happily, and doing their thing.
A very satisfying job.
