Hi there, I was hoping you guys would be able to give me some advice.
I have noticed that there are bumblebees entering into holes in the house (one hole under a window, one in a soffit board on one side, and one on the other side)
What I’ve also noticed though, is that the majority of the bees seem to have white tails, and I think they are tree bumblebees, I see the occasional red tailed bumblebee entering the hole under the window and not leaving for a while, while the white tailed are also going in.
Could anyone explain what is happening here?
I would assume that both types are nesting here, but I have seen so few red tailed compared to white that it wouldn’t make sense to me that only a few would make a nest?
I will try my best to get a picture, but I’m actually terrified of them, and while I realise they won’t sting unless provoked, I can just about deal with them being there (only because they’re there for one season), but am not sure if I’m up to getting close enough for a picture (it’s silly, I know)
Anyway, I hope someone can help me with this
