There is something in the air!


Yep, there is something in the air and we think it has taken up residence under the siding of our house. The scary thing is that I walk by here almost every morning on my way to do the poopper scooper job each morning. Well, I've been lazy for the past few days and when I walked around this morning.... Well, you see my little surprise! It's not a monster swarm, but this 50 or so is enough to give me a little shock in the am! Especially since we don't know if they have made it up and under the siding yet.

I have put a call out to a friend who is a bee keeper to see what she thinks should be done. See, I'm thinking that if she knows someone with a spare hive, maybe, just maybe.... We can charm the little fellows right in and they might be kind enough to let me keep the little fellows in the back field behind our house.

Yup, we knew it was August when we heard the bees in wall in our old NY farmhouse-it isn't such a problem here in FL. Hope you get it taken care of soon!

Yep, normally it isn't a problem here either. But our house backs up to a farm with plenty of trees, so we are guessing that is where they came from. Just met with a local bee keeper and he will be coming back out with a hive and we are going to figure some way of removing them. Either going in through the basement ceiling or through the siding on the outside. The fun part is that we are going to keep the bees and grow our own honey:)

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
