About bees living in garden.
West Yorkshire., United Kingdom
We have a raised bed, formed out of dry stone walling about a foot high. Last year this got no attention and is now badly over grown. I started clearing from one end, and became aware of a lot of bees about ankle height, I stepped back and sat on a chair to see what they were doing. They were going in and out of a little hole in the walling. There is quite a lot of them, they seem aware of our presence but they were not threatening. We have watched over a few days.
I have no experience of bees, we have decided not to do anything more on that bed but to leave it alone until they move on.
They are not bumble bees, they are more long and thin.
As it is said on the T.V., about bees being in trouble I wondered if anyone can give any information, i would not like to kill these off by ignorance.
