Bombinae (subfamily), Bombus (species)
Bumble bees are black and yellow winged insects which are about 1” in length, and have two antennae. They have small hairs all over their bodies that collect pollen. When they fly, they buzz loudly, so you always know when they’re coming.
Bumble bees can be found anywhere on your property. They usually make their nests underground, but will often nest on patios and other structures as well. While they’re important to agriculture, they can be a pest to the common homeowner because of how aggressively they’ll defend their nests. One run-in with a bumblebee nest and you could be covered in painful stings. Bumble bee stings can cause serious welts and swelling, and can be much more severe for those who are allergic to insect stings. If you suspect that you have a bumblebee nest on your property, contact a professional rather than trying to get rid of it yourself to avoid the risk of stings.
