    The lab I studied at in grad school sometimes collects paper wasp nests for research studying animal behavior. They'll remove nests for free, and keep them alive in a research setting. Contact me for specifics at [masked].

    Thanks Everyone for your help.
    I think I'll just let them have some fun for the summer, as I found out wasps die when it gets cold, and don't come back to the same nest in the spring...

    Hi Noah,
    Thanks for your response, I think you are right, it must be wasps,
    I have not seen them fly, but I'll watch them. Besides the nest is visible,
    so as you say bees nests are enclosed.
    I also spoke with Jean-Claude and that was very helpful.
    Again, thanks for your help.

    Hi Leela,

    Could you be seeing a nest of paper wasps? They have small nests often in eaves of houses, have up to a few dozen individuals (likely fewer this time of year), and fly with their rear legs hanging down. Honey bees nests are enclosed (so typically can't see them), tens of thousands of individuals, and don't have the same long, hanging back legs. Best regards,

    I meant to say that I noticed a hive, round and about 2 inches wide
    starting under the top heave of my roof,
    I can see bees working on it.
    I am just concerned they might get into the house.
    I have no experience at all working with bees.

    Hello Everyone, I have a new hive near the roof of my house,
    I am not sure what to do... please help.

    I may have a very exciting location if you're at all open to other parts of town! My own hives are in Cambridge, but the 23rd is the last day of a big social/art festival of sorts in the South End for which my friend and I (both former coworkers of Follow the Honey) will be building a giant inflatable beehive that we hope to hold beeschool/conversation inside of. If our proposal is accepted and funded, you'll have to pop by on/before/after the tour!

    I have one top bar hive in my backyard in JP near the arboretum and would be so happy to offer up a backyard tea stop!
