Bumblebees are re-housed without harm

posted in: Hive News | 0

On Friday we were called out to rescue bees that were found flying into the gap under the top floor window of a house in London SE22. After careful inspection of the loft area we located a very large bumblebee nest hiding under the loft insulation sheets. They had been there for some time and were using the insulation felt as their nesting material. The home owner is having that area refurbished. If the builder had crawled on it without a protective suit he could have been seriously injured.

The entire nest and bees was carefully removed and transported out to the countryside where they are now happily buzzing about undisturbed and safe.
Here’s what the owner had to say about our removal service.

I just wanted to say a massive thanks for your help with our bees nest on Friday. I rang several groups and bee keepers before finally finding you and your team – you were the only ones that I spoke to that sounded like you knew what you were doing, and I wasn’t wrong!

I hope that the bumble bees you removed from our loft now have a nicer home wherever you took them!

Many thanks again
