I just received a call from a lady about 10 miles from me who was wondering if I could come down and get rid of the "bees" in her birdhouses. She has a paper wasp nest of some sort in one box but in the other birdhouse she says she has bumblebees. She says you can see "comb" inside but it is different than honeycomb. She says she knows the difference and they are definitely some sort of bumblebee, larger and furrier than honeybees. Anyone have any idea what they might be?
Both birdhouses can just be unhooked and moved. Can I just pick up the bumblebee nest and bring it to my home? Will they reorient? How about the wasp nest, can it just be moved to a better location in her yard? (It is right by her back door.) Neither has been aggressive at all and she doesn't want to harm them, partly because "bees are getting rare, I seen it on TV".
