HERE!!

I really think it would take more than 250,000 bees to take us out. We've had worse odds with better outcomes.

Tree rats though.................. 1 bee = 1 less pest -

We mourn the passing of our brave and distinguished comrade.





Wonder if the meat was any good afterwards or was it full of bee venom?

"Booth said he can't explain why the bees are so agitated this year"

Call me crazy but isn't this one a little obvious? Rolling Eyes

"Farmers were trying to move a hive that weighed around 200 pounds when about 250,000 Africanized bees swarmed like a black cloud and attacked animals and workers"

I guess if you tried to move my home I'd be a little "agitated" also. Laughing

Yeah, I dealt with two wasp's nests.
One this year, one last.
First you slow the wasps down with insecticide.
Then you spray wasp powder around the entrance so they carry it in and the residents feed on it.
Both times the whole colony was dead overnight.
Then I sprayed the nests with a liquidizer which destroys the fabric of the nest itself.

Hated detroying the nests.
They're incredibly beautiful structures.
But otherwise it's there for a new swarm next year.

Wasps chew wood and cardboard into a saliva and spit it to make the nest.
Little buggers were eating my house to make theirs!
Where would I store me nuts?



edit: btw, first time I did this I wore protective gear because I wasn't sure what would happen.
Next time I knew it was the right way to do it and repeated the exercise wearing shorts and a t-shirt.

I kept Bees during High School, as my 4-H and FFA project., and while it's technically a misnomer, the "Africanized HoneyBee" were once known as the Killer Bees of the old late 70's B movies (no pun intended) the African Strain are Highly Agressive in fact local Co-ops as well extensions of the Agri Colleges told us if any African bees got into our hives we were supposed to destroy the hive.

just thought I'd throw that bit of trivia out there
