YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE!!
I opened the back door to let Boudxy out . . .and what to my wandering eyes did appear,
but thousands of BEES who are not welcome here!
Saturday it was a snake.And now I find swarming Bees have nested in our grill on the patio, less than 6' from the back door. YIKES!
I think I can hear some of you saying, "If you don't bother them then they won't bother you." Right. NO.CAN.DO. I decided to call a Bee Keeper and have them removed. Yes Ma'am, he'd be right out, but he couldn't say how much he'd charge before he came to view our particular swarm. Price began at $175.
Mister decided he'd rather keep the $175 and deal with the bees himself. I'm not sure that was the right decision. After dinner Mister pulled out the high-powered hose nozzle and the battle began. He sprayed those swarming trespassers, then flipped the grill lid over to find the hive and even more BEES nested inside. There was a Tsunami of water spewing between Mister and those little invaders. I'm not convinced that they are gone for good, but guess I'll have to wait until the morning's light to see. Mister survived with only a wet shirt, and not a single sting.
I know bees are necessary.I know they are "good".
But I've got way too much going on to be messin' with a swarm of bees. They simply came to the wrong place. Bee-lieve me when I say I'll be hiving none of this. (gotta love a couple of puns)
*the photo is not of our grill, but this is the way the bees looked as I peered at them through the window. I wouldn't chance it to go outside for a photo. Yep, I'm a Sissy.
