At least bees do not usually cause house fires. Not so sure about a Carlsberg/wine cocktail though, especially red syrah from Chile... Isn't the electron spin reversed down there or something?

Unhappy But seriously folks........

The core laminations are usually what buzzes as they are thin sheets of steel usually held together by varnish. I have seen the bobbin the windings are on, buzz if not attached to the core very well. The buzzing is usually worse when the line voltage is high or DC or low frequency garbage is on the line. I would replace it if it was bugging me. Wall warts are cheap and a bitch to open up without damaging the transformer or blades that go in the socket.
