None of your beeswax

October 8, 2003 - 9:43 pm 3 Comments

Last night I noticed that honeybees have moved into the stone wall in the front yard. Apparently since the Africanized bees have hit Austin, beekeepers don’t really come out to take away bees anymore. People now suggest killing the bees rather than remove them. I really hate to hear this, because although I’m allergic to them, they are so beneficial. We’ve got to do something though – at any given moment during the day, around 10 bees are flying in or out of the entrance to the hive, which is around 4 feet from the front door. Hopefully they will not attack the yard guys when they come out tomorrow. I’ve emailed them to let ’em know they might want to skip a week.

If anyone reading this in Austin wants a go at transporting them, let me know! I wonder if we can dismantle the wall to get a taste of Hunny.

    I passed a bee removal service guy on 620 the other day – damned if I can remember the name of the truck – I can only remember a bumper sticker on the back of the truck – not useful… Damned ’69 model brain.

    I didn’t even know you could have someone come and remove bees for you. Good to know!
