Bees by a compost.
stroud glos, United Kingdom
I've recently moved a compost back away from a fence about 3 feet. It consists of broken branches, a bit of soil, lawn clippings etc. Since moving it and within 10 minutes, about 4/5 bees have been buzzing around the low area by the fence. Does anyone know if they are perhaps looking for a disturbed nest ? I had no indication that there was a nest and do bees nest at ground or below, level like wasps ? Are they carnivorous like wasps and looking for small insects?
I'm not bothered but it would be good to know.
