Bumblebee nest in rabbit hole in yard

Recently a rabbit has been making a nest in my yard. I don’t have issue with this. However I noticed a bumble bee hanging around the nest and this morning it popped out of the nest. Since I’m assuming baby rabbits and bumblebees don’t make good roommates the bumblebee has staked a claim on the nest.

I assume the rabbit will abandon the nest? Tho unlikely I worry the rabbit has already had babies in the nest somehow and is being warded off by the bees? I saw her hanging around the nest the other night.

The nest is in an unideal spot because it’s right in the middle of the yard and I need to mow. I’m not sure how to do so without getting stung mowing right over the nest.
