How NOT to get rid of bees... though it worked

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

bee house.jpg

 

A bank repossessed this house (just down the road from us) and put some guys in it to "look after the place". A swarm of bees moved into the chimney, so one bright spark house sitter doused a cloth in gasoline, lit it and shoved it into the chimney. The top of the chimney. The remains of the THATCH roof can be seen in front of the remains of the house.

P.S. No-one got hurt (in the fire anyway) and the bees are gone.

 

Update: The house got repaired in full and beautifully restored in the process, about a year after the fire.

You gotta wonder about people roll.png. Too bad, it's a cute house, and thatch roofs are so neat. Guess the guy didn't know that a shop vac works just as good, and no risk of burning the house down, lol! Of course, you'd probably need a pretty long hose for a nest in the chimney.

“You can’t really begin to appreciate life until it has knocked you down a few times. You can’t really begin to appreciate love until your heart has been broken. And you can’t really begin to appreciate happiness until you’ve known sadness. Once you’ve walked through the valley, the view from the mountaintop is breathtaking"
