Sevin dust for bees
My girlfriend's Mom had a shed in the backyard with killer bees living underneath it. She spend a bunch of money on a bee keeper to get rid of the bees, but they came back. I bought a 3 pack of sevin dust and sprinkled all three cans at the entrance to the hive at night time. She just got rid of the shed and all of the bees were dead after a few weeks. Cost of sevin dust, $15 and bees are gone. Cost of a bee keeper? A whole lot more. It was funny how my girlfriend doubted me and thought how I could do better than a bee keeper and for a lot less money. BTW, if you need to do this, make sure you do it at night with minimal light. Bees won't come out in the dark, but if you shine a bright light on them at night, then all hell make break out.

The idea of a beekeeper is because the bees polinate fields. Since the beekeepers are scamming and charging for free bees then kill them I guess.

If they are killer bees I doubt beekeepers want them.

One side note, I used some seven dust to get rid of a couple of yellow jacket nests and it worked well. In doing some research about it I found out that apparently seven dust is very bad for normal honey bees. People dust their plants and then when bees get their pollen they also pick up the dust and then take it back to the hive and it poisons them all.

I had a nest of wasps that made a paper type nest in the peak of a small shed where I wanted to paint. I went out at night and spray them with raid. The instant the raid hit them they came out of the nest like bullets. Lucky none got me.

That is fine when the nest is out in the open and wasps don't typically swarm you like bees would.Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2

I think It would be a blast to piss a bunch of killer bees off. If there was a pool close by, I bet I could out run them. HA"I just don't Listen" "

I saw my uncle catch a whole nest of black white face hornets once. The kind that makes the big gray hive. He waited till the edge of dark, when they had all returned to nest. He climb up a ladder, and capped a garbage bag over the nest, and quickly crimped it off at the top, and twisted the bag shut. I was amazed only being about 12 then.

Sevin works well. For yellowjackets I use Delta Dust which is Deltamethrin in a super fine powder form and I dust through the entrance point. Sometimes I use a machine to inject pirythrin gas for a faster kill. I spray the entrance area with liquid Termidor for a long term residual to finish it off. If it is honey bees we call a beekeeper, they will remove the bees for free but it's on the homeowner to remove the honeycomb. It is pretty rare though and thankfully killer bees aren't this far north yet.

I don't believe they will get that far, too cold for them. I got chased once by a single killer bee. I couldn't imagine a few hundred of his buddies doing the same. Even after I got in my car, he hung around for a few minutes trying to get me.Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2

I saw a special on killer bees once where the host and cameraman had bee suits on. They agitated the hive, then started walking to see how far the bees would pursue. At one mile, there were still bees trying to sting them.Team Synergy/ Rail Blades

here in south louisiana there are wasps everywhere (yellow jackets/paper wasps)....if you try to get them all in early spring (march/april) you will get most of the females and control the population.

however, I had a playhouse I needed to do some repairs on, so I checked all the nooks and crannies and killed all the wasps i saw (spectracide commercial grade is awesome)....i then go inside of it and am banging on some nails with a hammer as sh** keeps falling on my head...dirt i guess....

until i look up at a wasp nest the size of my face, just crawling with dozens of them, occasionally falling down as I hammer.

I look down and see what I've done, wasps on the floor that I knocked down, wasps from above...o lawd.

I broke many laws of physics and my matter occupied 2 spaces at one time as I escaped the death trap faster than humanly possible.

No stings (I've been stung about a dozen times, its fairly unpleasant). the only thing that saved me was it had been cool for a couple of days and they were kind of drunk from that (the males all die off in the cold, only the females live from season to season, and typically they burrow underground).

anyway, I had a special ops mission that night, in the cold and killed em all (i stopped counting around 50)....

So they guy with the uncle that snuck the bag over them, yeah ((ck that.

Wow
Here is something to remind us how important we actually are...

If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed ten thousand years ago. If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos.

That is because man is not a beneficial organism. We do nothing that furthers the greater environment. We literally just consume without recognizing the needed balance in our ecosystem. I know that sounds really tree huggery but I think The Matrix said it best: We are a virus.

I couldn't agree more Jason. We run around blindly consuming, so busy with our imagined self importance.
