Guess who had Africanized Killer Bees on Friday?

Our bug guy came for the yearly checkup for termites and came in and said, "I have bad news."

I of course said, "Termites, no doubt, right?"

He then said, "No, you're free of termites but you have Africanized KIller Bees."

He then informed me that we needed to get that taken care of as soon as possible before they swarmed someone and killed them. The damn bees are drawn to dark colors and loud noises. He just described me. LOL So anyhow, they got someone out that day to rid our home of the bees, but not before we spent 900 bucks. Do you believe it? I watched from inside the house as this guy cut a hole in our roof, dug the hive and honey out and got swarmed like crazy. Then he had to repair our roof and put the tiles back on the top of the house. When the guy came down the ladder, he was covered in bees. They weren't happy with him at all. He said they had been there ten days and showed me the size of the hive and the honey made already. It amazes me that he could tell. But this is what they do for a living. We're just really grateful that Sam wasn't attacked by them after school. She's loud and could have drawn attention to herself.

Is my life exciting, or what?

What did you all do for the weekend?

Hugs, Patt
