Sure. What are we talking about? Five bees?
"No. More like 500!"
Yes, yes, yes. People tend to exaggerate. It's probably five loose bees that came in through an open door.
Well, I was in for a shock. There were 500 hundred bees bouncing on the windows trying to get out.
Okay, so now how do I get the bees out of the fireplace? And what about those thousand bees I let into the house?
I took the bees out to one of my bee yards and dumped the bucket into the grass. I have no idea if the queen was even present. A partial swarm remained on the outside of the chimney. Perhaps it will move on somewhere else and learn the lesson from their sisters to stay out of the chimney.
