A couple investigating brown liquid seeping through the ceiling of a Brisbane, Australia, house were shocked when it turned out to be honey from a massive bee colony.
NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE
Oh dang! This happened to some friends of mine in upstate NY. They had to hire a guy to suck them all up in some kind of bee vacuum and relocate them.
Oh man. I know someone (ERIN!) who had a bee infestation like this and it was neither cheap nor easy to get rid of them. Sure, you want to gently relocate them and send them upstate to live on a farm, but the reality is that you mostly can’t do that. So you have to get a Bee Guy who will go to war with 100,000 angry bees and WIN! And then, oh by the way the wax and honey and bee poop have caused a mold infestation so now you need professional help with that, too. Oh! And you have 100,000 dead bees to clean up!
I love bees, I honestly do. But when they decide to live in your walls, they will destroy your house.
Dude, nobody has more bees than I do. I have forcibly evacuated more bees from more walls than I ever thought possible. And yeah, to your point, it’s like $500 to kill the bees and $4,000 to pay Jimmy Carter to come over and establish a treaty. So as much as I feel for the bees, death it is. Mia, remember when you guys were here and we were TALKING about the fact that I must have a hive in the backyard? Yeah, it fell out of the mulberry tree in the middle of the patio last week. The size of a watermelon.
Aw, shitballs! At least they were outside?? I’ll bring my cat over to eat them.
My stepdad was telling me about a different bee infestation where the people just basically had to tear out the walls and start over because FUCK BEES.
