Hi,
I recently took the carpet off in my son's room and it seems that we have a bee's nest under there. A few comes out from under to go out..There is a definitely buzzing sound near the brick work.
What can I do? I had to move my son's out of his room but really need to do something about it.

Thanks for your help
Alexa

PS: I'm in Cambridge

And if UK Cambridgeshire or Gloucestershire?

I should have thought of that as my aromatherapy webiste gets regular hits from America and not just on the page devoted to bees either.

In general, when a wild hive moves into a wall or somesuch, it is "a curious buzzing," but it probably represents no harm to anyone inside the building as long as the bees cannot readily get inside your living-space ... which they probably cannot.

Local beekeepers will be happy to have a wild hive and should be able to help you properly extricate the colony without harming it.

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
