Bees Nest Advice

Tue Aug 03, 2010 4:43 pm

hey guys i need some advice,

I've got a bees nest on the door of my shed, which while i dont mind bees (unlike wasps) its not ideal to have in the garden with 2 kids so want shut of it.
I know bees are in decline at the minute so dont really want to kill them.

So i contacted the council, who said they prefer not to kill the bees and someone would collect them for £68.15 fee! WTF £70?!
They said my other option was just to leave them as they'll die out when it starts to get colder.

Neither option is going to happen, and i feel bad butchering the buggers but I dont know of any other way to deal with them, any ideas guys?

I say kill the little buggers. Do you have a flame thrower? :?

Kill them, they are only bees, and a couple dead bees really won't make a big impact on how many there are or anything like that.

So yeah, flame them :twisted:

Or better yet, douse them in liquid nitrogen, then smash the nest to smithereens with a sledge hammer! :P

Im trying to teach the kids to be nice and look after nature and all that shiz. Plus the bees nest exhibit at a local museum died and we all miss that.

The bees would do the same to you if given half a chance. Here's a nature lesson for the kids: Humans are predators, act like one by killing some lower life forms! :P

Exactly, we didn't get to where we are by being nice, and to dither other exterminating a few bees. By all means be nice to nature, but when nature is in the way and being a pain, blow it to buggery with flamethrowers, liquid nitrogen and whatever else you can get your evolutionary supperior hands on :P

Best and safest option is to flame them out using scorching newspaper. It's a tried and tested method of getting rid of bees.
If you leave it it'll only get worse, and you'll end up with your own honey plantation in next to no time. :P

See if you can find some bee keepers in your local area. More often than not they will collect them for free.

My MIL neighbour had a bees nest and got a local bee keeper to collect them I think he only charge £20 or so.

Dont kill them or Mark Whalberg will hunt you down and ask "doesn't anyone care what happened to the bees?" :mrgreen:

I'd suggest the same as Jem8472, call a local bee keeper and see if they want to come and collect them. Otherwise I'd just hold out until they die out and then get rid of the nest.

:D :D

When I was about 15 I did that to a wasp that got in to my bedroom...

...And set fire to the net curtains :P I tell you, those things burn fast! There was an almighty "WHUMPFFF!" and the whole curtain was gone in lass than a second! :lol:


Still, it killed the wasp. :mrgreen:

Don't be so obnoxious! :yikes:

What am I reading? Flame bees? What the hell?

When I find a bee struggling to fly I let it crawl on my finger, and get some height for it to take off from. Wasps ain't nice, but bees are lovely. Lovely lovely lovely, etc etc...

Peter, you worry me. :P If I saw a bee struggling to fly I'd whack it, put it out its misery, of course. 8-[ :wink:

If I had the bees nest in my garden I'd either(as suggested above) call a local bee keeper, or just kill them. A few dead bees isn't going to change the world.

:shock: ...But

You mean you don't love bees?

If everybody hates bees then soon there will be none left. Well, it's a bit exaggerated but they are just going to die off more and more. I don't give a damn about honey! I just want the bees. I love them as they wobble about in the flowers, zoom about aimlessly, get stuck in the greenhouse etc. I wonder what it's like to be a bee. :-k

Beekeepers all the way. :pelvic:
