  • The Bee Man

    Our house guest Katherine called me at work yesterday and told me the fire department was at our house because a huge swarm of bees had made a home in our crepe myrtle.

    Naturally I said,

        It unlawful to discharge a firearm in the city limits. Also, it would have been very risky. I may have missed.

            A shop vac huh?? I'll have to remember that trick. I had to do battle with a nest of white faced hornets. I waited until evening when it was cool out and they'd all be in the nest. Then took a can of WD-40, stuck the extension tube into the top of the hive, and then squirted almost the entire can into the hive. I think most died from the fumes.

                I once had a nest of vicious waspppppsssss, living in a bush along the front sidewalk. They would attack any moving thing in their turf, and the stings were nasty and painful.

                So I got the idea to hose 'em down with a water hose. Wrong! They came out in force and chased me into the house, inflicting many stings. Any visitors I might have had stayed away, citing severe emotional distress after being attacked and stung. No one sued.

                So I called the bug roto rooter guy, and he tried to spray them with chemicals. They stung him something fierce! (The tender nether parts!) So he went back to the shop and brought out the Uzi of bug sprays. They attacked in an army and chased him out to his truck! Still quite healthy, mind you.

                So then we had a discussion about "burning bushes" which I vetoed, as I didn't think the waspppsss would let us live if we tried that.

                He went away to consult his bug fighter oracle and we were in wasppppssss quarantine for two days.

                He returned with bug cyanide and after two long distance treatments(sprayer had a 20 foot range)he succeeded in sending them to bug heaven.

                I have received extensive counseling for waspppssss phobia and will be better soon.

                          You know Mike, I feel the same way! You know there was a time when I was plotting your demise, but now, slowly but surely, I am begining to like you a little bit.

                          Hell I even regret, well regret is to strong of a word, I sometimes wish I hadn't called you a jack ***!

                          Oh yeah, one more thing!
