"Please come and help us get these bees away from here because they're too many children around here, due to the safety of the kids," Green said. "My husband comes out here to fish. There's over 50,000 bees. We didn't even know it was here. I mean, it's kind of crazy."

They are swarming bees. At this point they are incredibly docile. I have stood under such a swarm, holding a brood box while my father shook them into it. I was 10, and wore not one stitch of protective gear - got exactly zero stings. I grew up getting stings all the time - almost never at hives, but when we made cane syrup. Unless you are allergic, virtually everything is worse than a bee-sting - why stop playing to go get a adult to look at the sting and agree that, yes, the bee did sting you, and no, you are not going to die?

When I was about 6 or 7 I was stung while some friends and I were in the woods by my house. I'm pretty damn allergic, but it wasn't known at the time. My only memories of that day are goofing off in the woods, then running back to the house screaming in fear. I remember getting as far as the driveway and then nothing. My parents, both medical professionals, picked me up and drove me to the local pharmacy to get an epi-pen. The drug store was a heck of a lot closer than the nearest hospital or police station or fire station, and my dad booked it there while my mom held my body. However, in the rush my dad forgot his wallet. So when he ran into the store (which used to be called Eckards) saying it was an emergency, he's a doctor, and he needs it the pharmacist didn't believe him. My dad ran behind the counter, pushed the pharmacist out of the way when he tried to intervene, and grabbed the epi-pen and ran out the door to where my mom was holding my now unconscious body. Maybe 10 minutes later the police show up and almost arrest my dad until they took a look at me and realized this was an actual emergency. They took my dad home to get his wallet, which had money to pay for the drugs and his medical license to show he was a physician and knew what the hell he was doing.

I like going outside. Bike riding, swimming, walks, and so on. Almost always have. But if I get stung, I run the risk of dying if it isn't treated immediately. So, getting stung can be kind of a big deal. Neither of my parents particularly liked watching me gasp for air and then pass out, and then hold me while hoping I got the shot of epinephrine in time to bring me back before the hypoxia caused any permanent neurological damage. It was that incident that led to me getting tested for allergies, since I had never been stung before.

Yea, for most people it isn't the end of the world. For some people, though, it can be. Nature really is red in tooth and claw. I don't expect compassion or anything on Fark, but at least don't be so f*cking stupid as to think nothing bad could ever come from leaving a massive swarm of bees alone in a residential area.

Actually, there are only about 40 to 100 deaths per year from bee and wasp stings. DocFarker was waxing Republican there.

Where the hell did you get 90,000?

The CDC gives the annual number in the US as 50-100.
The US population is ~5% of the global population. If we can assume everyone is stung equally around the globe we only get ~2,000 deaths. Although i won't deny that it is probably higher than 2k, 90k sounds ridiculous.

Hey, I explicitly left the epipen and the spending a tiny fraction of an emergency room visit out there as options.

I'm with you on the HOA though. Maybe she should just paint a brick under the swarm an unapproved color and dare the HOA to correct it without first breaking up the swarm.
 
2012-06-11 12:14:15 AM  
All these people freaking out over seeing nature around just crack me up. People need to remember that nature happens to live here too.

I wish there was a way to volunteer to have the entire hive moved up here to NE FL. I have an acre and a quarter out in farming country, no kids, woods on thee sides, and absolutely no problem with honey bees. My husband and I have talked about getting into bee keeping since neither of us are allergic. Maybe some day when we have time and the resources to do it.

Kome: a massive swarm of bees alone in a residential area.


Actually, very little will happen. Swarming bees are not aggressive unless you go digging in after the queen. They are just waiting until a suitable structure can be found for them to make a new hive - which they will defend once they go there. If you leave the swarm alone, it will eventually leave - whether because it has found a suitable home, or has decided to move off to scout another area for such a home. An overly-excitable dog is more of a hazard to the children than these bees.

As far as the $200, I imagine the NA contacted a local beekeeper, and he quoted that price to come get the swarm - and I imagine he saw the $200 as free money to skim off gullible burb-dwellers, cause he would get a free hive and $200 in the bargain.

Im a Republican and I did what we always do and pulled it from my ass because it sounded like a good sell. Either way they can kill and I'm sure most of us wouldn't want 50,000 bees for neighbors.

Boo hoo. You should have been tested for such a common allergy at a younger age, and you should always carry your epi pen with you. It's not a big deal.

I keep a hive, and bees won't mess with you unless you do somehting wrong.

But the bees are in a tree. On no one's property. Near a fishing spot. That's where you relocate bees *to*, not from. As others have stated, a homeless swarm is harmless unless you go digging in it. Hell, they don't even relocate gators there if they stay where they're supposed to.

I reiterate: Epipen. Helmet.

Unless, as we agree, it can cause havoc with an HOA. HOA hatred > bee love.
 
2012-06-11 12:38:09 AM  
Wanted to add that bees will almost always, always buzz you and then bump into you forcefully a couple of times before they sting. So there's plenty of warning. Maybe if you darn kids got off your phones and turned down your ipods you'd notice.

So did you pull that 90k out of your butt?

"Getting statistics can be difficult, but in 2000, the World Health Organisation reported that in the USA, there were only 54 deaths attributable to bee stings - from a population of 281 million (Census data)."

This is a great point. I've causally strolled along bee hives, had bees alight on me, and as long as I didn't threaten the hive or do anything stupid like start slapping bees they never bothered me. I wouldn't have a problem with a hive near me - in fact I would love to have the pollinating my peppers and tomatoes. But all these bubble kids will die of anaphylactic shock if they ever see a peanut or bee.
