A Bee on my Bonnet



We have loads of Bumble Bees going in and out of the garage.
They decided to live in there somewhere quite some time back.

We have to make sure that the back door is opened when we get up, so that the bees can get out easily. They could get out through the up-and-over door, but it's a bit more complicated.
I forgot the other morning, and a lone bee came in the house, presumably to get me to open the door. The door glass was covered in bees, all waiting to get out.

How, I wonder, are we to persuade them to live somewhere else next year?

According to Defra, up to £10 million is to be invested to help to identify the main threats to bees and other insect pollinators. Maybe it's because they get themselves locked in a garage all day?
