This has been the 12 months of the bees!

Little tiny bumble bees within the floor obtained me when chopping grass. I did see them the week earlier than however by no means thought they had been within the floor. Then found a well-formed bald confronted hornets’ nest within the eve of the home. It was hooked up to the eating room window, so it gave an ideal view of the inside workings of the nest. Sadly, they’re aggressive they usually needed to be eliminated. Then this morning little Jeramiah stopped lifeless when going out the door and I observed some small bees going into the underside of the door body! Actually, with the door opening and shutting what an odd place to arrange housekeeping. Once more, I hate to destroy something however had to make use of a few of the leftover hornet spray on the doorway. We might need to rethink all of the bee pleasant habits on the home! Scads of flowers and welcoming water pots to allow them to drink safely!
