The Pest: The Bumble bee . . .
Bumble bees are between ¼ – 1 inch in size, have black and yellow markings, and an overall fuzzy appearance.

The Nest: Bumble bees build their nests out of pollen clumps, usually in the ground or a dense grass clump, and often in an abandoned mouse nest.

The Threat: Bumble bees are considered a beneficial insect because they pollinate flowers. However, they can sting. If a nest is located in a near a structure, then control is necessary.
