    We're pulling the old siding off the building for the coop, and we've found SO FAR two wasps nests in the walls, a NEST OF ANTS in the wall, and... get this... A BEE HIVE IN THE WALL.

    This is becoming tiresome -_- I need to get rid of them, and get working on the coop REAL fast as the chicks are nearly 5 weeks and getting big.

    Please do not kill the bees, they are becoming scarce as it is.

    Quote:Yes they are, but those are HONEY bees. These could be any kind of bee. If they are honey bees then you could atleast relocate them somehow or build an artificial bee hive then place to comb in there. Atleast you didn't find a bunch of dead chicks in the walls. My neighbor who has a chicken farm said that one time they found hundreds of dead chicks stuffed in the walls because of rats.

    Black widows can make you very sick, and the bites are very painful, but rarely kill humans. ( I killed a black widow in my dining room tonight. I usually leave them alone, but not inside my house.)

    Wood scorpions stings are pretty mush like a bee sting, no, make that a hornet sting, painful and can make you sick but not close to being deadly.
