As an city dweller/urban farmer we don't see too many bees, hornets or wasps
these days (yellow jackets solely prevail and we have generally crappy
pollination as a result.) I think I will leave them be for now as their nest
is very large, and they are pretty active even at 5 am. Plus, I get the added
bonus of watching all their usually invisible activities from the inside of my
kitchen window. (Saw the next generation hatch one by one last week!) There
aren't any children around and they don't seem to mind if I am close enough to
water the window box, which less than three feet away. As someone mentioned to
me, they must be pretty domesticated to take up residence on my kitchen window
pane in the middle of the city.
As part of my winter garden maintenance I'll probably knock it down and
compost it after the fall frost.
dawn (who, after watching the fascinating life cycle of these creatures, wants
to become a neophyte urban beekeeper) ;)
