They have been in no way aggressive however I left them to do their factor, that Hosta can wait. I don’t know what sort of bee they’re. The closest I might come primarily based on the outline could be a digger bee. It additionally said that may have to be left alone for a few month. So I can do this. Additionally they have a really loud buzz, which is an effective factor, so I might maintain away. If anybody is aware of something about this bee, please let me know.
