    Found this hive today. Its nest that is in most of a wall and a good bit of the attic. When we opened the attic door it really pissed them off. they are all over in there still. A bee guy is coming to get them tommrow. Bee's have been pretty busy around here lately. I tried to get better pictures with my phone, but I was to chicken to get any closer. As it was they were flying into my face.

    I hate wasps and yellow jackets.

    Bees? Eh. The killer bees I could live without, I suppose.

    But that whole pollination thing does seem kind of -- I dunno -- important.

    Those little fuckers.

    I lived in a nice house once that had high eaves, and wasps and yellow jackets built multiple nests under them.

    I bought some cans of the super far-shooting wasp killer, had a few drinks and waited until dusk, when they'd all be home...this stuff shoots 35 feet....and I let them have it.

    Only I didn't let them have it. I let myself have it, directly in face and chest.

    I didn't die. I turned it around and I did let them have it, correctly...that stuff really works, and I didn't get a single sting.

    Honey bee's. Those are asbestos shingles, and the honey is dripping from underneath. It's also oozing from behind the dry wall. The garage is crawling with roaches. Its a huge mess. I see dollar signs. Lots of work there.

    I wish I could have got pics inside the house. This nest is huge. Massive. If we used that much poison we would most likely go to prison. The bee guy said he can get rid of them with out killing them, but it will take a day or two. I live about six blocks from here. I may buy a bee box from the guy and keep them.

    Last summer I was standing on my back porch and without looking I go to grab the handrail and I grabbed a wasp instead! It felt like a small nail going into my wrist!

    here you are not allowed to kill them. You have to have a professional come and remover the hive.... And yeah... its costs a pretty penny to remove them...and then repair the damage.
