Will birds and bees live together?

Does anyone know if birds will nest inside a birdhouse if bees have inhabited the house as well? We have a birdhouse which I believe is housing a hive of Bumblebees. I see them coming and going and hear them inside the house. At the same time, I saw a small bird (sparrow?) coming out from a hole in the roof of the house with nesting material.

I'd like to remove the house because the bees are too close to our deck and my 2 year old. But, I don't want to spray and harm birds if they are cohabitating.

Any thoughts?

I am not sure about birds living with bees

But if you do need rid of the bees please look into it first.In the Uk they are endangered, and it is illegal to kill the bees.

Birds and bees may live together but regardless of what your parents may have said they will not mate.
