    Put them in next doors bin, or put it down your trousers and release it slowly on your walk to work or better still just buy some sheep. HTH 😀

    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.

    Cheers, Rich

    I’m happy to keep them as they’re great for the garden but how long will they stay there? I quite like the idea of a hive though 🙂

    I’m sure a local bee keeper would be more than willing to take them off your hands. If you want to keep them then join a local group as you’ll want to learn what to do properly I think.

    We’ve got a bumble bee nest in our compost bin too. Been there 2 years I think. Not sure what I’m meant to do when I want to remove the compost though.

    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?

    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 pulp
