I have manicured (very leefy) bushes along the front of my home. About two months ago I went to trim a bush on the side of my home and was immediately confronted with a highly organized military sytle bee attack… I’m confident that these bees studied the “shock and awe” concept that was used in Iraq… (My attempt at humor)…
Anyway, I can’t see a hive because there are a tremendous about of leaves on this bush. As a whole it stands perhaps 4 ft tall X 4 ft wide. I live in Florida but the bees are definately not Africanized. A few dozen fly out but I haven’t been stung yet (as I would if they were the more dangerous variety).
My question… How in the hell do I get rid of these darn things so that I can trim my bush? As I said… I can’t see the hive to spray it with a chemical and I can’t get near the thing without immediately pissing them off. I tried soaking the tree withTriazide (or something like that) which is supposed to kill 140 or something bugs… didn’t work.
I’m confident that the nest isn’t in the ground. As soon as I touch the bush with the hedge trimmer they freak out.
They are dead… I used two suggestions from here… I looked retarded but I put on a long sleeve shirt (tucked into my jeans), put gloves on over the sleeves, pulled my socks up around my pant legs, and used a few T-Shirts to wrap my head up (except for my eyes). I pulled the branches of the bush down slowly with a couple of rakes that I had in the garage and exposed the nest (which thankfully was exactly where I looked the very first time). (Yellow Jackets with a paper nest)… I left the rakes in place and sprayed the heck out of the nest with some wasp/hornet killer… No more problem. I kind of feel like a wuss for not getting to them sooner but what can I say… don’t like bees…
I plan to move to Utah and the one thing I’m really worried about is killer bees I here they are in the American southwest. I don’t know if they get killer bees in utah, I sure hope not because those things will attack in the hundreds of thousands and if I swat at them they will get angry and sting me more, and there is no way I can outrun them because I get tired easily and they chase you for miles plus I can’t take shelter in a swimming pool because they will just wait for me to come up to breathe. If I’m attacked by killer bees do I have any hope at all? How on earth do I defend myself? If I use a blowtorch will that save my life or just get me killed faster?
they prescribed him the epipen shots but what is the point in getting them if you have to come to the er as soon as you take it. i thought that this shot would keep you from having to go to the hospital. he doesn’t have a severe attack like not being able to breath or anything he just breaks out from head to toe and his lips went numb and stuff. which is why he went to the hospital but i don’t see the point in filling this prescription if he still has to go to the hospital afterwards neways. should i get it filled and why

Here’s how to survive when they’re on the rampage. To complete this How-To you will need: The ability to run quickly Soap and water A flat, straight-edged object (optional) Warning: Seek immediate medical attention if you feel sick, have trouble breathing, experience severe swelling, or exhibit any other signs of an allergic reaction to a bee sting. Step 1: Run Run away as quickly as possible. Avoid swatting or crushing any bees, as this will only worsen the attack. Getting out of there as fast as you can is the best way to neutralize them. Run for at least 100 yards. Tip: Don’t swat at the bees or wave your arms. Bees are attracted to movements. Step 2: Protect your head As you run, pull your shirt over your head to protect your ears, eyes, nose, and mouth. If you can’t do that, use your hands to protect your face, leaving spaces between your fingers so you can see. Step 3: Find shelter Immediately seek the shelter of a building or vehicle.
