Bees… lots of bees

By johnboy - 1 October 2008 44

I’m finding a bee every few minutes on the window of the RiotACT bunker, and am dispatching them to the hereafter. I thought this was just my cross to bear (more so for the bees to bear I suppose).

But now I hear a friend has suffered even worse bee-carnage yesterday.

Are the bees acting strangely for you?


What’s Your opinion?

No, not acting. They seem quite serious about it.

Better than “killer wasps” ;P

If anyone finds a bee swarm around town, calling a beekeeper to get rid of it is the equivalent of saying “Would you like a great big herd of cattle, already rounded up into the corner of a paddock, ready for you to pick them up in a truck, entirely at no cost to you?” to a dairy farm.

Well it is spring – I’m not surprised there are more than usual…

A freind has had a hive in a tree for years with huge fans of honeycomb hanging from it – last weekend some of the fans fell off, leaving the ants a tasty treat and presumably a fairly unhappy queen.

Maybe there really is some sort of takeover happening now?

For the mature hives, swarming season is about to begin .
This is standard bee behaviour (and if they are doing it now, it will rain either on or by the weekend).

So in answer to your question, no.

Bee at peace. They won’t harm you!

Stop mentioning the hive mind and they’ll leave you alone.

Let the bees be. Now we know why they are disappearing.

The bees and I have an understanding. They stay above my head height, and I’ll stay below it. Peace in our time.

Down here we get European Bumble Bees. Big loud and slow moving. Perfect for rubber band guns!

Two bees or not two bees, is this your question?
