Sparrows and Tree Bees!
we have recently moved in to a beautiful cottage that needs a bit of TLC...including the iron guttering and slate roof tiles.
We currently have sparrows (who still seem to be very....busy? the male is more enthusiastic about this than the female!!!). We also have what I think are tree bees. We have no desire at all to evict either species, however, I would like to not have a leaky roof by the winter or be responsible for a passerby getting severe concussion because a bit of my iron guttering fell on their head.
I'm going to ask a couple of roofing companies to come and give us a quote next week but I don't want to book the work in until after I'm sure the sparrows and tree bees have vacated the premises. Would the first few weeks in September be a safe bet? Might the last two weeks in August be ok?
Any help appreciated!!
