Bees!!! 100,000 of them! It happened on a Tuesday afternoon. My friend Jenn and her 3 kids were up visiting from Vegas. The kids were outside playing and having fun. We had just finished lunch and cleaned up. Jenn went outside and I was on my way when all the kids and Jenn came RUNNING, SCREAMING and CRYING into the house. I asked what was wrong and she said that our house was being swarmed by bees. I laughed and thought well it probably is not a big deal and was just a few bees flying by. So Kasey and I went outside and looked up at the roof and say the biggest black cloud over the house. It was ALL BEES!!!! I ran next door to get a phonebook and started making calls. I got ahold of a Bee man and he came that day and said that he would get them out for us.
When he first took a look he thought there was about 30,000 bees. Which is a lot. Well he came back the next day and said "I think there is about 60,000.". Okay, Well as long as you get them all I will be happy. By the last day he said that there were 100,000 and that it was a good thing I called him when I did because there were 2 hives that converged into our Chimney and that there were SEVERAL virgin queens along with the two main queens. GREAT!! Well he got them all out and fixed the chimney.
He was really nice and let the boys put on his bee suit and go up on the roof with him to check out all the bees. The boys that it was GREAT!!
Glad the bees are all gone!
