HELP! How to prevent a nest in my compost?
I just went to dump some kitchen scraps into my compost and found ~15 bees flying around or on the compost container (it's not a rolling barrel but a four-cornered container directly on the ground with a lid). The ones on the container were focused on one of the top corners (there is a hole there … I can't cover all of the holes b/c there are numerous b/c air flow is important for compost). I didn't see any combs yet. How can I prevent them from building on the compost bin? How quickly do I need to act?
