Tree Bumblebee

Tree Bumblebee
A tree bumblebee feeding on hawkweed at Port Sunlight River Park. These are easy to recognise with their furry chestnut thorax and white tail. They are very successful invaders in the UK first observed in the south in 2001 and rapidly heading north.

Their nesting habits can be a problem with increasing numbers being found in houses - my daughter recently reluctantly had to have a nest removed from just above her front door. The nests are particularly troublesome at this time of year with dozens of drones buzzing around the nest frantically searching for a mate.
