My Bees!
Forenoon watch, 4 bells (10:16 am)

I found a wasp nest under the eave of my house the other day.

Let me put this in perspective, though—I found a wasp nest as big as my head under my eave the other day.

I've been engaging them and their queen in chemical warfare. I needed to haul a ladder out so the sprays at least twenty feet bee spray can spray up the 18 or 20 feet to the nest. Apparently you can only "spray at least 20 feet" when you spray down… 🙂

Anyway, last night I really got them stirred up, there was buzzing everywhere. Fortunately for me, most of it was on the ground, writhing in bee-pain. I couldn't get back inside for about 15 minutes due to the sheer amount of bees swarming around my front door. Finally, most of them died off and I was able to head inside to safety.

I hosed down the nest this morning, about half of it fell off the house. Whatever bee-glue they used to stick it on is still working for the honeycomb apartments where they lived, though. I'm going to have to get a big stick and poke it until it drops off, I can't have any new bees moving in unless they pay me rent.
