    Lots of big **** off bees around and I've just killed my second inch long wasp in as many days. Yay......

    I would retreat into my basement darkroom for the remainder of the bee onslaught, but I wouldn't go down there for about two weeks around Christmas when one had assaulted me. He was brave - survived winter's worst by making his way in, looking to kill me and take over. I can only bet they have more waiting to take me out if I were to attempt to hide from them...*glances around*

    I hate bees and wasps and hornets and anything else that flies and stings. I stepped on a a hornets nest when I was little, it wasn't pretty.

    Bees are absolutely brilliant creatures, not to mention an integral part in many things we eat...I hope to raise them some day.

    Here's a fascinating link...http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/bees/

    Go bees! ;)

    Wasps are just as important for your garden as well. They're carnivores and do a great job of eating all the nasty bugs you don't want. I still hate them though.

    Bees are cool, as long as they stay away from me. Like I said, I've killed two wasps but saved two bees who got stuck in my room and another couple who've come into this room.
