"They surrounded me like bees; they were extinguished as a fire of thorns; in the name of the LORD I will surely cut them off." Psalm 118:12
Lately, we have been focusing so intently on the ground that we hardly ever looked up. Until, that is, Eric got stung by a bee in the front patio area. After looking around to see where it came from, this is what he found. The neighbor's DH estimated this as a three-week construction project.
What to do now? Counter-attack!! So begins Eric's dance with the bees.
First weapon of choice: diesel fuel. Works great for killing bees; however, leaves an awful mess on the house. And the smell is not so lovely, either.
After awhile, Eric switched to Simple Green just to clean the house off.
In case you're not familiar with this dance, here's a few moves for you to practice at home (ha, ha, ha).
Have you got it? It really is quite simple - you just let the bees lead!
Where was I during this dance? In the vehicle, of course! In one of the photos you can see the side mirror of my Jeep.
