Well, I still have my little backyard swarm of bees just hanging out in their favorite tree. It seems that any amount of Buddhist mindfulness is not moving them anywhere fast.
I have been getting a little stressed I have to confess. Roberts response has not been helpful and is along the lines of "well I can just go down to Home Depot on the way home from work and buy some bee killer." Yeah, great, thanks.
It also seems that most of the bee companies "bee removal" techniques range from soaping, to freezing, to pesticiding the bees to death, including Lady Bug, the "environmentally responsible" pest company who use freezing as their bee killing method of choice. One guy told me, (not from Ladybug mind you), not to worry because there are "lots of bees in Maricopa County, we know because we get called out several times a day." My polite response back was that there wont be quite so many bees in Maricopa County soon if they are constantly being killed off!
I know, I am a freak, but the thought of all those bees being killed makes me want to cry.
The good news is that I have found a bee man who will capture them alive, and release them elsewhere if none of the bee keepers in the area want them. He is from a company called "Bee Bustin", and although he can't make it out here until tomorrow morning, I think it will be worth the wait.
