Our neighbours have a problem with bees - there's a nest in their shed, bees buzzing in and out.

Luckily I know a man who keeps bees at work, so I mention it to him - suspected honey bees and he has a nice empty hive ready to fill!

So he calls round with all his gear - only it turns out they're not honey bees after all - they're bumble bees.

And here they are:

Being relocated to their new home in the field at the back.


  1. Thats very interesting. I've never seen a whole nest of bumble bees before.

  2. Awww that is brilliant!!!! Save the bees!! :-)

    What an amazing nest - thanks for the pic!
    Take care
