The Bee Whisperer

Tuesday evening when I came home from work hubby was out looking at a limb that had fallen from the tree on the corner (happens often) then I saw him looking at the water meters (there is one for our house and one for the gas company behind us) by the time I got to the edge of the house, I could see what he was looking at - bees! They were coming in and out of the gas company's meter. Bunches of them - I didn't get any closer. He called the city to report it and last night around 7:00 this guy knocked on the door. Thankfully he wasn't dressed like this when I looked up to see who was there.

Hubby showed him where they were and he suited up and went to work. This was the best I could do for pictures - the flash doesn't reach that far and this is what I got w/o the flash. This chickie wasn't about to get any closer just for a picture! (I never left the front porch) He was there for quite a while and I did look up (from my stitching chair - I can see out the front door) just as he pulled the hive out but I didn't go back out and take another picture - I'm sure it was too dark by then anyway. Then he vacuumed out the stragglers but he said there may still be a few that weren't in the hole at the time so be careful. Not to worry Mr. Bee Whisperer - I'll be keeping my distance!
Kathy - sorry to disappoint, but I just can't make myself put a picture of my short fat toes here. Nope. Can't do it.
Stitching pictures tomorrow!
