Thanks

    Lucky you, Joybell...though some may disagree image

    Keep an eye on the shed as it may be looking for somewhere to nest or it may have just been just collecting wood to build a nest in another location.

    Fortunately for us hornets are relatively peaceful next to other members of the wasp family image

    We had a hornets nest in our garage a couple of years ago, they never bothered us, This year we are lucky to have bees nesting near our patio doors!

    SOMEHOW A BEE EATER CATCHING AND KILLING A BEE DOESN'T HAVE THE SHUDDER FACTOR BUT THEY HAVE NESTED AND RAISED YOUNG THIS YEAR IN NOTTINGHAMSHIRE.
