Bees in my bird box


Recommended Posts

I noticed some bees have moved into a bird box at the bottom of my garden, i am happy for them to stay there until they have finished with it but after they have gone will i need to clean the box out (remove one of them honey comb things) or will the birds do it themselves ?

 

Thanks

if they've turned your birdbox into a hive, where are they going to overwinter? Won't that just be in your birdbox?

 

I can't imagine trying to get that much honey and wax out of a small wooden box - I'd just put a new birdbox up ;)

 

If they do leave, you could try cleaning it out I suppose - the birds won't fit in if you just leave it
