never quick.... never easy..... never where I think.....
« on: June 19, 2009, 08:46:23 PM »
Granted, I am a dang rookie.  Good ol' bees, though, they always figure out a way to stress and confuse me.  LOL  They were in an area on the front of this house, that I desperately hoped they weren't.  Didn't seem they could possibly be there, but that is where we finally found them.  Hot, sweaty, sore, .......FUN!   :)

I am sure with IDEE, or JP'S experience, it woulda been cake.  Sure was a stumper for me, for awhile.  All's well, that ends well.  They, the owners, are happy, and the bees..... well, they will be happy eventually.  They are in my woods now.   ;)

I'd toss a few pics on, but I don't know how.  Nothing great anyway.  Just blowing off a little steam.   :-D

They're all a piece of cake.
Some Angel Food, some Mudcake, but all cake.  :-D   :evil:

I've seen what they can do and where they can be and have been amazed so many times by them, that worse case scenarios are always a possibility and I'm rarely surprised anymore.

If they can expand the hive into adjacent areas, they will. Now just because you understand the construction of the building doesn't mean they "can't" be where they shouldn't. You'll be amazed at where they can be and often enough they shouldn't be there but for construction mistakes, yep, human error.

Have to factor in construction errors or you're in for a rude awakening. Bees are great at finding the one mess up on an entire building!
