Bumble Bees

Bumble bees differ in appearance from honeybees in that they are larger, hairy and less aggressive.

The bumble bee is a gentle creature, which will not sting unless provoked.
It is responsible for a lot of the pollination in this country.

Due to environmental pressures and a change in farming and gardening practices some species of bumble bees have recently gone into decline.

Only in extreme cases do we destroy colonies of bumble bees. Usually it is possible to live with them with very little difficulty.

It is also sometimes possible to move the nest to a less problematic area.

The nest rarely has more than 200 bees at its peak in late summer.
