I wondered if anyone could help. For the past month of so we have noticed what looked like small bumble bees bussing around a hole in the ground when we mow. They seem to settle down afetr a while and are non aggressive. I know bumble bees nest in the ground but I thought they were small individual holes.
Tonight when I have been up there seem to be 2 holes, the size of a canteloup melon, and a lot of soil on the grass that I don't remeber being there before, I have not checked this area since sunday. I thought at 1st it was rabits as it is in the veg garden but when I looked down I could see about 10 of these small bees resting toggether! Now I'm happy to share the garden with the bees, in fact we have a hive of bees in said garden, I am more concerned incase it is a rabit making the holes or something after the bees.
Does anyone know anything about these?
