Well, it looks like he's trying to pisss them off to me. I don't think they make a big enough can of wasp killer for that many bees.

Take care,
Tim

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.

The Reason

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.

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.

I ran through a swarm like that on a tractor last spring. I jumped off the tractor, let it roll down the way, ran around and jumped back on it.

Last month we had a swarm flying around here at work until they found a bicycle seat to rest on. They were there for 2 days until the exterminator was call out.

Been there done this! All he is going to do is pi** off the bees. My hunting closet in the garage was a new home for a swarm and I tried the same approach and was rewarded with the opportunity to run screaming and kicking to get away from a very aggressive group of bees. Called an exterminator and got the opportunity to clean up a large swarm and a very large honey comb. Be careful!

I had a swarm move into my barn once. Called a local bee keeper. He came out walked up to it and picked up the swarm with both hands, placed it in a hive. No stings, no problem. He said they are not very aggresive when on the move and looking for a new home. The workers just follow the queen until she finds some place to start a new hive. She stops, they stop, she moves, they move. He said just take your time and move slow and they won't sting you. I'm not calling him a liar but I'm not going to find out if he was telling the truth either!
