These showed up two days ago. I think they are really cool, but my DH is not so impressed-says he got stung a lot as a kid. Didn't think it was too funny when I replied that they only sting to defend nest or self. I guess he stepped on some barefoot in a clover lawn when he was little, and didn't learn too quick to wear shoes or watch where he was stepping. Anyway, we contacted a beekeeper in Phoenix.(closest one our Ag Extension office had a # for) He said they should leave in a day or so, and if not to put a smoke source under them and they will leave. Are any of you BYC members beekeepers also, and could give me more advice?
