Honey Bees

Yesterday we arrived home from a short trip into town.  I mean we were seriously gone for less than an hour.  I think had we not returned home at just the time we had we would have never known this had even happened, but an entire colony of honey bees have moved into the roof.  Right on my still in progress, need to be out there working on, deck!  So it seems the deck has reached another delay and we now need to call a bee whisperer to relocate the honey bees.  Because it was nothing like we had ever seen before (and I wasn't sure anyone who didn't get to witness it would understand just how incredible the thousands of bees were) I took a short video.  It took maybe fifteen minutes for all the bees to disappear into the roof (so not cool).

Sorry my video is sideways.... video is brand new to me and I thought I would have the option to rotate it once I got it on the computer.  Maybe there is a way, but I can not figure it out (and I figure everything out!).  You get the idea. Funny to listen to my 4 year old speculate that the bees must be having an important meeting LOL.  Wish us luck!

  6. Oh I totally understand what you're going through right now and totally believe it!! We have killer bees that keep coming up and nesting in our cement fence in the backyard. We've had them removed twice, and let me say it's not cheap at all!! But within minutes there will be thousands back there, and mean I tell ya!! Hope you get all of yours gone very soon, and don't forget to remove the honey and clean completely or they will be back..just a new and larger family!

  8. I don't know where you live. I follow people I don't know for crafts and usually fast forward through posts which are not craft related. However, I love bees. We have a hive in the backyard. You have a swarm. They either have always been wild or more likely just left someone's hive. The state where I live, Utah, has a bee hotline, an 800 number that people with swarms can call. Then beekeepers who are ready to capture a swarm are called to come get it. The captured swarms I know about were in trees or bushes. Having the swarm located in your roof might be too tricky for a beekeeper to capture. I don't know. Good luck.

  9. Oh my...glad you were gone when they decided to have the meeting at your house! Out of the mouths of babes...so cute! We had this happen at our house in a tree...interesting site when the bee keeper came with his white suit on and his smoking can...my kids were small and loved every minute! Hope they left quietly and the meeting was over quickly...;) Have a nice bee-free day!
