    More bees

    Took a pic of this hive while I was on vacation. It was in the peak of a big, old, 2-story house in Iowa. There were some apple trees nearby that had a bunch of spoiled apples on the ground under them and the bees were all over them.

    Oooh! I think I'd leave that hive right where it's at. Or I'd call a beekeeper to get it. Does it look like a one-eyed ogre to anyone?

    I'm a beekeeper and I would have no use for bees like that. Those nasty suckers don't make honey.

    Re: More bees

    That's crazy big. You know what's cool? If you ever find a young nest that is still being built, if you lay out a bunch of comic page colored newspaper, I've been told they will use it to make their nest and with their "saliva" you will end up with a tiedie looking psychedelic nest. Anyone ever try this?

    Re: More bees

    Funny you should mention bees,I sat down at the pc a couple of days ago.I was sittin drinkin my coffee when all of a sudden there were several bees buzzin around my head ! I tryed to catch em and take em outside but I'd take one out come back and there were several more ! Finally put up a sticky strip and ended up catchin about 100 of the little bass...guys.Yesterday they were mostly gone and i was sittin here when somthin was crawling on my foot and without thinking i brushed it off and the little bass...guy stung me on the palm !

    Re: More bees

    Ain't no way I'm gonna even consider taking a nest of hornets and laying it on funny pages....had a lifetime share of stings already

    Re: More bees

    I knew they were hornets. I just call honey bees, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets and the like all "Bees". I guess I'm technically wrong in doing so but I'm too old to change. I'm glad I'm not dealing with them though. I'm back in California and they're still in Iowa. The guy that owns the house wants to collect the nest intact. I think he's nuts!

    Re: More bees

    Hey packer, I know why he wants the nest intact. Those "paper" nests are a hot collector's item now and bring some tidy sums. I'm sure he wants to make a little moolah!
