Other Damage?

Structural damage only occurs when found nesting in an attic. The warmth and moisture form a hive can cause the drywall to soften which can lead to bees being found inside a structure. This is not common. They are also venomous and can cause possible allergic reactions.

Signs to Look For

Large, loud, hairy bees going into or coming out of any opening consistently.

Where are they noticed?

While Bumble Bees can build hives inside, they are normally found outside, under or within debris.


Foraging in and around structures for food and nesting sites.

If Untreated…

If left untreated hive will grow in size, which is not a good thing in any structure. These bees are not aggressive and will leave people and animals alone in most cases. However, when disturbed, this bee will sting both people and pets.


If a hive is definitely noticed treatment is recommended. Preventative sprays are not usually needed for this bee.
