A smallish insect hive has been forming on the grill of my balcony in the last month or two, and I wanted to know should I be worried or can I just let it be. Its 13th floor in Singapore, if the height helps in ID. So far they have not been very aggressive, and have not bothered us even if we get within few feet of it, but want to know if that can change in horror movie style..
You can find the pictures below, both are pretty much the same, but with some flash tweaking. For a size estimate, they appear to be between half and 1 cm long, and the distance between the bars of the grill is about 12 cm or so. Are they some kind of bees? Would they leave eventually or is this a long term thing. Also, the length of the hive appears to be growing at ~ 1-2 cm per week.
