How disgusting is this?!
I came home from a night out and Andy was with the kids outside about an hour after bedtime just looking at the peach tree. I was a little confused, until I walked outside and saw this. It's hard to tell from the picture, but this swarm of bees was about the size of a soccer ball. They were mellow since it was night time, but still very creepy to me.
Luckily I have a good friend who is a beekeeper! I called her up and she came over a short time later in her bee suit with an empty hive in hand.
She got the bees for us and now has them at her house making sweet honey! I'm glad to have them gone from my house, and she is glad to have them at hers. Vweegudna! (That's the pronunciation of a Russian word that means good for you and good for me.) Andy and I were outside watching while she was capturing the bees and they started flying all around. It was a little scary, but nobody got stung, well not until the next day when Andy got stung on his knee.

  1. I'm with ya! We have bee problems with bees too but nothing like that. Scary!
    That's awsome you had a bee keeper friend to help you out!


Oh how I love your comments!
