Are you sure it's bumble bees? Usually BB don't have that much traffic to their nests, maybe one or two every minute or two, at the most - usually.
If they're a wasp/hornet, they die at the end of the year anyway, you can leave them there until they leave, if you don't bother them.
If it IS BB, they might come back the next year, and they are also sometimes hard to treat. They usually take over an old nest (ground squirrel, rabbit, etc) and the poison we usee sometimes has difficulty reaching all of the nest, so the best way is to dig them up when winter comes and they're dormant - or more so...
Find out EXACTLY what your target is, for sure!
