YOU MAY HAVE A BUMBLE BEES NEST

Native Bumble Bees love compost or old mouse holes, somewhere where there's a lining of hair or fine litter. If you can leave them please do so, they will be gone by early July and are not a threat to you, but you are a navigation hazard to them, they are busy!

If your bees are in a bird box which will detach from its mount, it is possible to move them (click here). Regretably you cannot move a Bumble Bees nest in the ground, there is no structure to pick up.

BEST ADVICE: LEAVE THEM ALONE

 

YOU MAY HAVE A SOLITARY BEES NEST

On the left is a solitary bees nest. The bee spends it's short life on its own and raises new bees by early July when it will leave.

BEST ADVICE: LEAVE THEM ALONE
