Eekkkk Beeeeezzzzz!

Well our problem to deal with today is this huge clump of bees the BIL just noticed.  Surely we would have seen them before if they had been there for long but as it is, they are hanging on a clump under the eaves of our house and it is a Sunday night and we are trying to figure out what to do with them.  I'm not even sure if they are honey bees or Africanized bees.  So I have been Googling around and some sites say they will move on in a couple of days while other sites say to find a beekeeper who will come and get them while yet other sites (pest exterminators) say to call immediately and they will remove them (with deadly force I am assuming).  Since bees are pretty important and are dying off in droves anyway, I don't want them killed, I just want them moved, preferably far far away.  Hopefully we will have a solution by tomorrow...

  2. OMG! I'd call a beekeeper first. Like you said they could be good bees. Even if they are, that's a pretty alarming sight.
