gutter clean problem

Recommended Posts

adrian5139

ok so there i was this morning with 2 side by side houses to do gutterings on, (full of pine needles), so working away & the chap in the one house said, "when you go round the back theres some bees hanging about," so i said i would have a look for him, well when i walked into the back garden there must have been 2-3 hundred bees if not more all round this bush. I politely said ok fine thats me done for today when you have them sorted give me a ring & i will come back. Think the custy had a death wish, went & banged the tree with a shovel to make sure they were still there & by god they was so half a day today, great !!!!!!!! :huh:

Man!

 

I had a swarm near me a few years ago whilst working...opposite my parent's house. We had to get a specialist bee keeper out to come and take them away, he said there were about 50,000 bees there!!

 

They eventually formed a massive rugby ball shaped clump on a bush. He said the follow the queen wherever she goes.

If I see any try spraying them with the pole if that doesn't work just smash em with pole instead (taking care not to hit pole on anything) :huh:
