The bees are back!

So, a couple of days ago, my son came in the house having a fit. "The bees are BACK!" And, of course, he was right. It really bothers me to have to spray these things, because I really do need them in the garden. I didn't have half the pollination from last year during the summer, because we had to spray this hive. But, we really did have to spray it because we had honey dripping off the front of the house, as I have previously blogged about. And I just had this feeling the bee "guys" were going to show up during the baby shower I was throwing for my sister. Sure enough, the doorbell rang and that is exactly what happened. Oh well. SIGH. So, now we have a constant shower of dead bees on the front porch as we wait for the hive to die. So sad.



  1. Well the shower was so fabulous I didn't even notice the bee people at the house! It was beautifully done and I can't thank you enough!

  2. I had to kill a swarm of bees we had in our garden last summer after they didn't shift for a few days. I was really sad too but was advised that because they are almost certainly Africanized that no bee keeper would want them if they did a live capture. The little bee bodies still made me sad for days though. I can so relate. :(
