Pay backs are hell

Ok so I’m in the back yard chilling with my family and shepherd pup when the pup attempts to retrieve a soccer ball that rolled off the hill. A short cry and I’ve got the puppy running up to me covered in bees. After taking care of her, the 450 comes to the rescue. It is amazing how pissed the bees got, and the more pissed they got the more they attacked the 450, oh what fun (six minutes at a time). My wife now approves of the helo in the back yard.

I've done that before on a yellow jacket ground nest. Just land over the hole, switch on idle up and let them die.

hate to be on the other side, but bees actually do the planet a whole lot of good, and we are getting reports that their numbers are dwindling, which if it is allowed to continue will not go well for us. Either move your dog out of harms way or fly somewhere else. Failing that you could try to move the hive

talk about bees, I crashed and lost my Sceadu two weeks ago into brush on the hill side. A group of us started a second search last Sunday, even in full gear, I was sting by almost whole hive of hornet when I missed my step and slided down the slope into a hive. Next thing I found myself in hospital for three days and sick leave for whole week. eight days since the accident, the wounds are still itch and ....

hey flint, I don't have a rabbit and I'd be the last person on this damn earth to hug a tree.

Not that it's ever going to possibly happen, but if we all killed bees with our helis and they got wiped out we'd be f*cked as a species, who would do all the essential pollination?

Morris,

That must be the most horrible thing to go through, you'd probably wouldn't even wish it on your worse enemy.

As, I said, I have only done that to a yellow jacket ground nest. I dont know what the population of yellow jackets are in the rest of the world but at this time of year, yellow jackets are like flies, they are everywhere and ground nests have been known to kill a few people locally. Honey bees are a different story and I understand that their population is down significantly over the last few years. Honey bees and bumble bees do most of the polination in these parts. Yellow jackets just feed on dead plant and animal products.

you know, maybe me and a few biologist friends of mine should start a company breeding ants and other such insects that do pollinate plants because all these damn helicopter pilots are killing the bees . . . what do you all think?

naah, ants would be too slow. Why not genetically engineer bees without stings ? You'd plobraby be doing them a favour, at least they wouldn't die when they stang

Pay Backs

Ok before we all get too carried away with this bee extinction episode. I live in an area where I purchased a fairly larger parcel of land with a stream. I donated half of the land (the portion with the natural stream) to be utilized as “forever wild”. So in essence half of my land can never be built on and even though I pay $9,600 in taxes every year just on property, at least half of it now supports grey fox, ducks, and yes rabbits.

Flint I think that your conservation is admirable so why would you attack a person that is talking about the conservation of bees. We have lost nearly 3/4 of our hives in the US and scientists have no real explanation. But we would be F%$ked as a species if they are gone for good. The very oxygen we breathe is dependent on them. I am not attacking you I am just adding my 2 cents and most people might think that is all it is worth.

I heard a story today while at a barbecue (while bees were hovering around)... that 27 states in the US are wondering where their bees are. They seem to be missing (more on the thought that they are migrating to Canada), but I think it seems to be because of the sales success of Align's Trex helis that they are starting to affect the bee's population.

You worried about the bee's I would be more worried about the huge hole in the ozone causing global warming that will cook us all as if we are sitting in the oven. So what we need to do is stop driving are cars to close the hole in the ozone that way are windshields won't kill off another bee so we can control the population of bee's with are helicopter's

Just so we're clear here...

Are we talking about bees, or hornets? Bees, I say let them be (no pun intended), hornets are carnivorous (okay, omnivorous), and I am not positive but I don't think they do any pollinating. I say, let them die.

Also, I think a lot of bees are dying from a virus lately.

And global warming caused mostly by man is a FARCE!!

Wasps (presumably hornets also) kill other insect pests and are therefore a good thing. Though I wouldn't be above killing one at a picnic. And I am a tree-hugging vegetarian.

I'd be more worried about flying anywhere near my dog. I've always been careful to keep a lookout for dogs and to stop flying when they're about. But don't you find your trex acts as a dog-magnet? I'm sure mine would think it was fantastic until it clobbered them on the head.
