We just noticed this today... Not sure what to do about it. The pic doesn't do it justice. I took these pics from inside the house from our garden window. There are SO MANY bees flying around it and around the side area of our house.
We're thinking, wait until dark, put on hat, thick jacket and gloves and run out, paste a chunk of duct tape over the hole and then run back inside.
I don't wanna spray it with any bug killer (I've got the shooting wasp killer in a can) b/c then it might be harmful to the birds who will be moving in in the spring...
