- Bees nesting in my compost
Well, got the usual Council green (dalek) plastic compost bin in my back garden mainly for my grass cuttings. Took the lid off yesterday to be met by a load of angry bumble bees. Seems like they’ve made it their home now!
Any advice and what to do about my grass cuttings?Posted 7 years agoturboferretSubscriber
Depends on how keen you are to have bees in your garden.
1 option would be getting a hive for them to live in, although the exact process of coaxing them out of your compost and into said hive could be interesting. You can buy hives for about £30 from eBay.
If you don’t want to keep them, then the council will probably be able to remove them for you.

Lucky you! I put a mix of chainsaw chipping and the pulp from my cider production in my composite bins. Should have made a top composite. As I obviouslly did it in the autumn when rats are beginning to get short of food….well needless to say still have the chainsaw chippings but no apple pulpPosted 7 years ago
