help big f444n bee hive
this is at one of my neighbors house that i mow how do i get rid of it
Only thing I hate worse than snakes are bees. A shotgun would be fun.
They had one of those down here recently and they brought in professional Bee Keepers, who removed it for free so they could raise the Bees.
a propane torch would be even more fun... but if you are not looking to burn down your neighborhood maybe try calling a bee keeper.
Throw rocks at it, get them stirred up and get out the cans of Gumout. (We did this as kids, but they were hornets).
Took a look at the picture again...it looks huge Have any measurements)
like kmann said, call a bee keeper, they'll be more than happy to come take them
Unless you have access to dynamite I would stay away. There is not a question here, leave it alone or call someone. I cant beelieve (haha) that you are dealing with that now. It is so cold here I am still burning oil at high noon..
Those bee's are swarming. Meaning half or more of a existing hive is moving out with a new queen. Bee keepers will be more than happy to come get them. Or you can actually do it yourself very easy. Get a trash bag (white would be best because bees do not like black) place it over the swarm you may have to cut the tree limb or you can just rake them into the bag. The ones you do not get into the bag will find the rest because the will follow the queen. Bees should not sting when they are swarming. Yes I keep bees. But you are too far away for me to do it.
You should see the look on my face. I LOVE messing with them. I was always the crazy kid who tossed rocks and smacked the hive with a stick.
Stand back and bust up the nest with some rocks. Or if your feeling daring smack it with a large stick. Let them calm down, then you and your buddy empty a can or 2 of bee spray on them. Most of the bee sprays out there will kill for several hours after you spray them.
