It is better to avoid destroying the nest because bumblebees are very useful pollinators. Nevertheless, when they build a nest close to homes or in house walls it may be necessary to intervene. Start by finding the entrance to the nest, either in the ground or a hole in an outside wall.
Apply a light spray of Maheu&Maheu Insecticide Dust
in the opening. It is important to avoid plugging the hole with powder or caulking because this prevents the bumblebees from leaving the nest, which may cause them to find their way into the house. Spray again every evening as long as you see bumblebees coming out of the nest. You can also place a Maheu&Maheu Universal Glue Trap
near the entrance to the nest. The bumblebees will get stuck on the trap and the nest will be eliminated faster.
It is best to perform the operation at night (in total darkness), and it is a good idea to wear coveralls or thick clothing. A protective hat with netting and thick gloves provide even greater protection.
Place a flashlight on the ground pointing toward the nest, but stay out of the light beam. Escaping bumblebees will be attracted to the flashlight. If you are a little nervous, have some Maheu&Maheu Flying Insect Killer
handy to protect you against any bumblebees that may decide to attack!
