Bumblebee queens, more than I've ever seen, are fighting for nesting space on my roof today. Has anyone tried building bumblebee colony boxes? What's it like living with bumblebees?


@phooky Just make sure they’re not carpenter bees, which look a lot like bumble bees but drill large destructive holes into anything wood like for instance window frames. And they come back every year to lay eggs in the same space. They leave tell tale piles of sawdust.
