I think there might be a hive in my loft?
This morning I was a bit surprised to see a procession of bees? disappearing under the gutter when I stuck my head out of the window for a breath of fresh air.
We have two loft spaces that are separated by a stone wall with some cable holes in it. They are in the unused one above the garage.
They aren't a bother at the moment, actually I'm amused that I'm forever complaining that I don't see any bees in the garden, but I don't know what it means.
Are they damaging the house by chewing wood or something?
Will they continue to expand within the loft or just fill a standard unit of space?
If I went into the loft would I be attacked by an angry swarm or are they contained within hive walls?
Will there come a point where they swarm into the garden?
Do I get any free honey?
