All three of my bird nest boxes have been inhabited by bumblebees this year. I don’t have a problem with that but was wondering if birds and bumblebees are in competition with each other when it comes to nesting spaces? If a bird comes across a bird box inhabited by bumblebees will it just move on?



usually yes they don't fight over the space.

Nice to hear the bumblebees are flourishing though!
