This Years Bee Evacuation Attempt

Every year I get bees. I have no idea what it is like, but apparently it is the Frigging Four Seasons for the insect population under my cement front step. The bees come back year after damn year! We have all been stung and have learned to be extra careful when we walk up to the door as to not make any of them angry. My past attempts to get rid of them have included:

-hanging fake wasp hives
-boiling water
-expand foam sealer
-sticking the water hose down there
-wasp spray
-and covering the hole with dirt.

This year my friend Chelaine said she saw on pinterest (eye roll) that steal wool jammed down there would help. So off I went to get 3 packages of steal wool. Not only did it not work, I infuriated the little bastards and they were dive bombing me while I shoved it down there. Plus, I even did it very late at night thinking they were asleep... false, they have night patrollers who keep watch for such behavior!

 NOTHING IS WORKING!!! And my poor neighbors son was stung the other day.

So I decided to use shaving foam. I have no idea if it will work, but after all these years and trying everything I am just grabbing anything and giving it a go, partially to see if it works, and partially out of boredom and desperate need for cheep entertainment.

I just went out and added another layer of shaving foam while...So we will see tomorrow how this works. Fingers crossed.


I am grateful for Melissa, I got your sweet card in the mail and I wanted to say thank you. That was too kind and I really appreciated the kind words!

I am grateful for short shorts.

I am grateful for all the goodness in my life. I appreciate things more because not everything is easy...I like when not everything is hard at the exact same time...but I am loving my life non the less.

Bees hate borax. Sprinkle it around the area or add some water to it and pour it down there. Also try a fire extinguisher . My dad uses it and it works. Good luck xx

Call Ant Pro in Stony/Spruce. We had the same problem year after year, he came and put some stuff down, problem solved, well worth the one time cost.
