put up another box for the birds. the bees are really important for the flowers and fruits in our gardens. you may find that they move elsewhere next year.
welcome to GoY too.

I agree with Seaburngirl that it would be a good idea to leave them alone and buy another bird box. Some people even buy dedicated bumblebee boxes, as they are becoming endangered. They are not aggressive unless threatened.
