You'll be lucky.  They are opportunists.  If you feed them, they'll stay.

Just pick a leaf and tear it.  The smell of bay is unmistakable.

Be aware that some things from supermarkets are treated so that they do not sprout. It extends their storage/shelf life.

It really would be sad to begrudge the bees a few leaves.

Now, I know nothing of metal greenhouses, but is it usual to have 'fins' sticking up on the outside?  Has anything been constructed inside out?  I've looked at the YouTube over and over again, but I still can't quite see.

Sorry to be a total wet-blanket, but I would not have built it quite so close to the house.  You need to be able to walk right round the house, and to put steps to access the roof, and to clean the glass.

Certainly if it is anywhere near drains it should be removed.  Sadly.
