Re: Found a bumble bee nest. Now what?
I take it you are refering to a sill plate? A timber which sits on the sill from which the posts and studs rise out of connecting to the top plate? Is there no way you can identify this area? Spray w/ paint maybe? And then becautious around it or avoid it? Your 18 month old probably won't go around there for a while on his own. Until he forgets.

W/ a curious 18 month old, I know what I would do. And if you are concerned about killing a native pollinator? There are plenty of them near by, I'll bet. This is a case of a beneficial insect become a pest. You live too close to it. I guess the third alternative is for you to move somewhere else.
