Last Friday, I went out to get the mail and noticed a few bees buzzing around out top balcony. I thought maybe they were just lost and didn't think much of it.
Saturday passed, then I was in my craft room on Sunday and saw this out of my window.
Yeah, I sort of wanted to gag. I have never in all of my 29 years, have ever seen anything like this.
I called our pest control company in complete panic. First thing I thought was "African Killer Beeeez!!" and I refused to go anywhere near the front of the house.
Luckily, our pest control man was able to come out on Tuesday and spray all 4 million of them, well, nearly all.
So now I have little bee bodies all over my porches and flower beds, but you know...I don't care! As long as they are gone! I have no idea how this colony's scout bee convinced them all that this was the best spot for their new home.
This is the honeycomb they built in less than 48 hours. Can you even imagine how big it would have been by today?
On a side note, I did research having a bee keeper come out and take them. But most bee keepers don't want wild bees like this for their own colonies and it's about $500 to "excavate" them.
