Bee nest in backyard

Asked May 21, 2017, 1:32 PM EDT

I'm wondering if these bees are aggressive or friendly assuming we stay out of each other's way. They have made a nest in my backyard.

Thanks for your question about bees. Your assumption is correct. These are not aggressive bees (and we need all the pollinators we can keep!) Here's a link to a similar question posed on Ask an Expert a couple of years ago, with bees taking up residence in a birdhouse.

Here's a link to a valuable article about how you can help bees--regardless of the type--in your yard.

Hope these are helpful. Good luck!
