Jeez, It's Bees

Saw a pile o' dead bugs in my driveway
this morning and thought, "Who dumped their dead bugs here? That's rude!"

This afternoon, my neighbor pointed out that I had a colony of bees in my tree. Where at? Right above the pile o' dead bees! Wonderful! That's all I need is having to spring for Africanized bee removal... and I gotta do it before one of my neighbors gets stung.








At least, I'm assuming they're Africanized. I haven't heard any drums or chants yet....

    Shotgun, with fine birdshot. You gotta admit, it would be interesting to watch...

    On a cool night, hit them with CO2 extinguishers. Wear 5 levels of full body Tyvek.

    Even in Africa when you hear drums and chants it is most probably from a cd.

    Get a professional beekeeper to check them out if you can--or at least an amateur who handles a lot of bees. Killing plain old honeybees would be a waste.

    If they are not "Africanized" bees, they should be captured. It's tricky business, but possible. My dad and I have done it several times.

    Well, if they are Africanized bees, you probably ought to give 'em the Tarzan treatment.

    You know, strip down to a loincloth, yell like a maniac then take a flying tackle at the swarm armed only with a knife...

    I bet you could charge admission for something like that!

    Take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

    In Arizona you have to assume they're Africanized.
