Yeah, I've heard things along that same line. Sure wish that queen would've stopped somewhere else that day. Had me on edge for a good while......lol.Z Man said:The reason they do that, so i was told, is because they are moving to a new hive or something like that and the queen stops litterly anywhere she wants. When the queen does, well so do the worker bee's....they swarm her for her protection. they done this last year in my back yard. they usually move off in a couple of days.
I know at the time that wasn't funny, but your description of it made me laugh visualizing. LOLbayrat said:That can't be good. Not trying to hijack, but I have a story along the same line as this. Last year, a buddy and myself were fishing out of POC. Parked the boat next to a cut on one of the islands and took off wading. After a monster wade with little to show for it, I decide to go get the boat while my buddy continued to wade down the shoreline. Well, to my surprise, when I get back to the boat, my console is covered with a swarm of bees. I'm standing there dumbfounded trying to figure out what the hizzy I'm suppose to do. Finally, I decide to start throwing water on them. Did this until I was able to reach into the boat and fire it up. With a good many of them still buzzing around, I jumped into the boat, hauled in the anchor, and took off. Amazingly, I didn't get stung one time during this whole ordeal. To this day, I have no idea why they would congregate on the boat like that. Needless to say, it's not something I want to encounter again. May not be so lucky next time.
Sorry...hahahaha! Oops I mean really..sorry!bayrat said:LOL........glad somebody got a good laugh out of it. It was pretty nerve racking at the time.
