hi,i am not a be keeper but i have noticed a lot of bees that are hanging about by a small hole on the gable end of my house they are quite small bees dont think they are bumble bees i dont mind them but do they do any damage and will they attack if i go up into the loft area as i think that is where they are as the hole was left when they took out old water tank and pulled out the overflow pipe.

cheers kevin
