FACTS RELATED TO BUMBLEBEE DELMANEXPERT PEST CONTROL SERVICE
- The Bumblebee is a widely distributed social insect know for its ability to collect nectar from flowers and pollinate plants.
- Bumblebees are large yellow and black flying insects with a distinct buzz. There is variation in coloration among bumblebees and some species have bands of red, yellow and black.
- They have stocky bodies that are covered with many hairs to which pollen adheres.
- They live in smaller groups than honey bees and do not tend to swarm.
- Bumblebees hibernate underground.
- They scent mark flowers they have visited.
- Bumblebees will not die if they use their sting, whereas honey bees will.
- When a bee stings, some venom is injected into the body through the stinger. In humans, this generates a short severe pain that then fades away. Occasionally (in approximately 1% of cases), an allergic reaction against the injected venom develops. The response to a bumblebee sting can differ per incident.
