Looks like you've got tree bees Bruv

Lots of people have them this year including my next door neighbour - they appear to be good news, pollinating our fruit trees - and we're told they will not do damage to your house, and anyway will leave before the winter.

I dont think so. Call the local pest control and send the picture to them - im sure they can idvise.

Dovefromabove - thanks, yes, your link has matching pictures.

I should be able to leave them alone as long as they don't come through inside the house. I just hope they'll frighten the cats in my flowerbed that I wrote about recently . . .

Pest control companies are being inundated with these reports of these at the moment - they are advising to leave alone - they do no harm and are good for the gardens.  They are not aggressive and will only sting if threatened - don't know if that applies to threatening felines or not

I shan't pester the pest control companies then, especially as they charge more than the bees do for coming here.

I guess one could say - your honoured as bees are on the decline.
