I'm an Expert

I need to speak to an expert.

The man on the phone was concerned about bees taking over his hummingbird feeder. 
I think the bees are keeping the hummingbirds away. It’s swarming with bees.
I reassure him that in nature birds and bees are on the same team. Flowers that attract pollinators don’t cause turf wars. I ask if he’s allergic to bees or has children who are.
No, but the feeder is right by the front door and there are lots of bees now.
I suggest that he move the feeder.
Oh, good idea.
I’m an expert.
