On our way home from the Farmers Market, my hubby called me and said "We have a problem" I knew this couldn't be good. He said "I started to mow, and I saw all these bees flying in the air" "There are thousands of bees on the branch of the tree". I did not doubt him out loud, but I thought to myself thousands? There is no way there could be thousands of bees on our tree. Now I have seen this in movies or in T.V. land but never in real life. I told him "I am on my way home and we will see what needs to be done". Well as soon as I got home, camera in hand I went to the tree. This is what I saw.......
Our little Maple tree literally covered with thousands of bees. As you can see the branches are not that big. These bees were layered on top of each other.
I got my zoom lens, cause I sooooo do not want to end up in the emergency room. I snapped away at the bees, I could not believe my eyes. Like I said in movies and T.V. land but never, never in real life.
I was thinking to myself "my hubby did not exagerate at all, there are literally thousands of bees on this tree".
My hubby did not know what to do, like I said never in real life, he called his dad to come over with some spray. Well this spray only angered the bees, his dad had to come back with something stronger. As of now it seems to be working the bees are dying off little by little.
So there is my very exciting afternoon.
