Bumblebees are very beneficial insects because they help pollinate crops and plants. These bees are excellent pollen collectors because of their fuzzy bodies and bumbling flight pattern. They create a droning sound while flying. Bumblebees can sting but are not aggressive. They will only sting when defending their hives.

Bumblebee hives are typically found in the ground. However, bees will nest anywhere that protects them from the weather and provides a safe place to store nectar, such as in woodpiles, sheds, crawl spaces, or decks.
ARE BUMBLE BEES A CONCERN?
