Bees in compost bins

Dear Julian

My problem is with bees nesting in one of my compost bins. I have no wish to harm them but I would very much appreciate advice on persuading them to relocate, preferably not in my garden.

Dear Christine

If they are Bumblebees, which I suspect they are, just leave them. The colony only lasts one season. It will die out in the autumn. Then just dig over and remove any debris. Hope this helps.
