mother in laws got bees nesting under the lawn, probably around 2-300 bees flying around at the min.

 

anyone think of the best way to remove them? the councils said its £45 unless she waits 10 years untill she retires when it goes down to £25 (ageist gits)

 

theres also the possibility of a can of raid but its well known some of the famil;ys alergic to stings so thats out

 

my offer of a supersoaker filled with white spirits has been politely but firmly declined

 

so any other cheap or free ideas

Father in-law had a wasps nest under the lawn in their garden years ago, to get rid of them we got a long tube, poured in a gallon of petrol (much cheaper in the old days - might have been 2 star for those that can remember different fuel grades) stood well back and lit it :D, muffled whoomp and then smoked for a day or two and that was is :lol:- lots of wasps died trying to get back into the nest but no one got stung:-)

Bees are in decline and environmentalists say thats not good.

Could you not find a beekeeper in your area -would imagine they would not charge for it-if they were to take them ?

 

There has to be another way without destroying them.

We have the same problem with bees but ours is under our lean-to conservatory :-o

 

We contacted our local beekeeping association and this is what they replied:

 

It sounds like it might be a nest of bumblebees. See if you can identify them from this website and if possible try to avoid destroying them as there is a decline in the bumblebee population in the UK. They don't survive the winter and so will die naturally in the autumn. The nest won't grow too much in size.

 

Bumblebees commonly found in the UK

 

This web site shows pictures of the six most common bumblebees in the UK, there are 19 different species in total in the UK.

 

Hope this helps you decide what to do.

thanks for the replys

 

unfortunatly by the time i had got out of work and suggested a local beekeeper the father in law had returned from work, dug several inches into the nest and left the hosepipe on it for an hour.....

 

apparently theres still some bees but not alot, personally i would have prefered to let someone move them, if they had been wasps (personal phobia) then kill em but bees although im alergic to the stings do not bother me.

 

looking at the pictures they seem to be fortunatly the most common type
