bees in bird nest box

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.

the telly expert syndrome is part of the current celebrity culture. People love it (or so I conclude) it saves doing your own thinking, reading or communicating with real people.

pests to some are wildlife to others 

I leave deciduous leaves on planted areas, it encourages worms and all the mini-beasts that help maintain good soil structure.

But if Bay Laurel is Prunus laurocerasus, that has the ugliest leaves when they dry off and they go through the shredder.

Bay and Laurel are 2 different plants.

could be either NewBoy. It happens sooner or later but if not stimulated by wind or animal it can be less obvious because it happens a bit at a time.

They'll be gone by the end of the summer and will make a new nest next year. They don't use the same one again.
