Bee hives, all our bees are in bee hives, on combs, which are cells in wax.
Thankyou Dovefrom above, I have checked out the bumblebee conservation website & discovered that my bees are forest cuckoo bees. As you suggest, cowslip2, they will raise their young & leave. Meanwhile I will be ensuring any visitors to my plot steer clear of the compost area. The bees are very happy spending their days on the rosa rugosa which is flowering like mad at the moment. I'm afraid I don't know the answer to your query nutcutlet but would be interested to know. are we able to post photos here?
Glad you've identified them and can work out a way of living together
