Tree Bumblebees are the most common ones to set up in a bird box. Mine are all long gone, nothing wrong with them. Just part of their life cycle

I pulled a couple of those out today, and divided some aconitums. I didn't eat them, I washed my hands before lunch and I'm still here, same as last time. 

experts?

I agree with Borderline. It will either be OK or it won't, you can't alter anything.
