My name is Kevin and I have joined this forum for any advice.
I know only 2 things about bumble bees 1) they are an endangered species and 2)
they are not normally aggressive.
My problem is they have recently built a nest in my lawn, underground. When I mow the lawn near their nest some come out and start hovering menacingly around the lawn mower. By this time I have legged it and only return when the bees have flown off.
I have no wish to upset the poor little blighters and would not dream of damaging their nest.
Has anyone any experience of this and are able to recommend how not to upset them when mowing.
