I seen a bumble bee flying around one of my birdhouses and I went a little closer see it. Two of them got after me and stung my right ear!! I’ve attached some photos.

Dear Jerry Lee,
Bumble Bees frequently nest in abandoned bird houses. Bumble Bees are not aggressive, but they will defend a nest. We would urge you to allow these native, beneficial pollinators to live in your bird house and to watch them from afar.
