How to turn your house into a 'bee quiet' zone
I'm using my barbecue this weekend, so I thought I'd clean it up. I knew there were bees coming from under the cover so I thought I'd kill them...
I thought I'd suffocate/smoke them out. So here's the weapon of choice...
Now I know these 'control bombs' aren't for bees, but I designed my delivery system to be easily maneuvered under the cover of darkness. So then I release the weapon of buzz destruction...
The sound from under the cover was incredible - you could hear it 3m away! Then I ran like the clappers - came back a few minutes later to see the death toll...
There was at least a 20mm wide mass grave!
I continued to remove the cover to light the barbecue when I noticed some fatty-looking substance on the top of the side shelf thingy... Bit weird... I cleaned it before I put it away for the winter and no way was there fat there - so I begun to wonder...
We think the queen flew away. Either that or a small child has wings and has been living in the hive 'cause that thing was huge...
Be sure to check your grill this spring!
