Big wasps, and bees in the wrong home

We have, which seems very late in the season, some large wasps building an unusual nest underneath a bird box on the house.  Not sure which wasps, but could be Median or Tree wasps. Thanks to Buglife we now know they are European Hornets, which is good!

We put up a barn owl box last year, but it’s now become a beehive for wild bees. Question – do we remove it in case owls would like to use it, collect the honey or leave it be? The entrance has been filled with wax.
