can I ask a really dumb question? I always thought wasps killed bees? how do you keep both of them? ((I get wasps every year and every year try and find someone to re-home them but my landlord calls an exterminator before I'm able to get someone to check it out))

Wasps and bees typically don’t really care about each other. If there is an abandoned honeybee hive, all sorts of wasps and hornets etc will invade for the free honey, but otherwise they keep to themselves. The swarm that moved in to my empty nuc was actually investigating the wasp box not too long before they discovered the empty box. While there were bees in the wasp box, the wasps didn’t care at all. They just kept tending to their own nests and let the bees come and go. ^^
