April showers bring May flowers

So what do flowers bring? Bees of course, and lots of them!

Bumble BeeBumblebees live in colonies. Therefore, each Spring a queen bee will find an appropriate place to nest and form her colony. Nesting sites are often abandoned rodent burrows underneath concrete or wood piles.  Her first eggs grow into workers that feed on pollen and nectar.  These bees are capable of a painful sting when defending their nest. The colony produces several queens in the fall.  These queens will begin new colonies the following Spring season.  Although Bumblebees are honey makers, the honey they produce is not edible to human kind.

Reducing the amount of rodents and their burrows will help prevent Bumblebees from nesting.  Bumblebees can be aggressive so control should be carried out by a professional.  Direct insecticide applications to nest areas are very effective.
