What Happens When A Bee’s Nest Gets Hot Is Fascinating

  • Date: 12/06/2020
  • Category: Bees

bees use their wings to blow cool air into a hot nest. another interesting fact from anston pest control. On a recent episode of BBC’s Springwatch, the presenter showed an example of Tree Bumble Bees ventilating their nest, which was located inside of a cavity in a brick wall.

He explained how, on hot days, when the nest reaches a certain temperature, it must be cooled.

To do this, a number of Worker Bees gather outside of the nest hole and flap their wings, which directs cool air into the nest.

It is a very inventive way to ventilate the nest and it is something that is often done by other social insects, including the Common Wasp, Hornets and Honey Bees.

The Safe Removal Of A Bees Nest

removing a bees nest from a chimney and proofing the site with mesh.

We are often called out to instances where a householder or property owner has a problem with Bees.

We work with local bee keepers in the removal of nests. Once the bee keeper has removed the queen and as much of the honeycomb the bees are taken away for re-homing.

It’s then our job to ensure that they do not return to the nest site. To do this we proof the site, on this occasion inside a chimney, we remove the chimney pot, proof off the location with mesh and the chimney pot is then cemented back in place.

Bee Spotting

Many people mistake bees for wasps. In the spring, you will see different types of bees in the garden, all busily collecting pollen, so it is important to understand that the behaviour of the bee and the wasp is very different, as are the nest treatments we carry out, which are totally different.

It’s Wasp Time Again

Towards the end of Spring, you may spot Wasps. The queen, which is substantially larger than a worker wasp, will be actively building a nest for the new Summer season. Read more about wasps here.
