See, another example of what's wrong with media.  They had the perfect opportunity to explain that swarming bees are mostly harmless, not having a hive to protect.  That, while intimidating, that they posed no real threat to this woman, her family, or the kids in the neighbourhood.

But no, they had to go on and on about how frightening the situation was, and how everyone was lucky to get out with their lives.

For some reason, my mental image of bees is that they are clean -yet flies and other insects are dirty.

So, even though they sting -I'm not grossed out by bees.

That's not the impression I got, from the beekeeper saying that if she had driven off, it would've 'disturbed' the bees. IME, disturbed bees tend to sting, and bees are disturbed very easily.

I'm under the impression the queen had landed under the truck and they were going to nest there.

/a queen bee decided my house was her new favorite place.  She brought 10,000 of her closest friends, some of whom really liked my kitchen.  Called a beekeeper who got them out overnight before they could build their nest.

Fun fact: When I was a kid I thought they were called African Eyed bees. So whenever I'd see a bee I'd try to look for weird eyes, but they all looked the same to me.

So I gotta ask though... what exactly are dead bees supposed to do?

Beekeepers, yes ... they've gotta want to be - "I want to be a beekeeper! I wanna keep bees! Don't wanna let them get away; I wanna keep them! They have too much freedom ... I want bees on elastic, so when they get pollen, they come back here! My father was a beekeeper before me, his father was a beekeeper before him; I wanna walk in their footsteps." And their footsteps were like this: [running wildly from imaginary bees] "I'm covered in bees!"

Well, Mr. President, it's the bees and spiders again.  They stole my food stamps and sold them to the rats, and I tried to get down to my car for to honk the horn for help, but the snakes is guardin' it for the cockroaches. I go back upstairs, but the spiders has jammed the police lock.  I ain't been inside for a week, and I know that my wife is sleepin' with the bees.

Perhaps she could have run her car in reverse and the bees would have all been crushed, but I think the vibrations of the motor would have spooked.

I'd have started the damn truck and drove away...
What kind of idiot stays grounded for days because of bees?
So what if they swarm? You're safe in your car driving away from them at 35 mph, at least.
They can't catch you.
fark the rest of the neighborhood...like I said, the bees would disperse soon enough.

Drive very slowly to a very bad neighborhood, like say, the police station.

Then there's Africanized bees, which like to gather and sting you because they can.

We had a bee swarm build a hive under our roof a few years ago. We were a bit unsure about what to do with them at first, but figured we'd just let them do their thing and not worry about it too much. They just moved out after a year. The funny thing was that in spite of having a bee hive right at our house, you rarely saw any bees in the garden, not more than in other years anyway. I guess they quickly collected the pollen and nectar that was available in the garden, did their dance thing to let other the bees know that there was none left close by, and they all swarmed out further away to look for food. You could sit in the garden all day and never know that there was a hive of a couple thousand bees 30 feet away.

Maybe because bees mostly crawl around on flowers, and flies mostly crawl around on shiat?

the thing we learned from our ordeal was that they are docile while unthreatened, but you should still move them and try to do it before they build the nest, which takes 1-3 days depending on the size of the group.  The reason for that is
1) bees will nest where there is already an empty nest - something attracts them to it
2) if not bees, then rodents and insects love those nests for the honey or whatever else they can eat in there

Bees swarm in the spring. This is not news.
 
2013-03-26 12:47:27 PM
You could have gently scooped them into a bucket/etc and nobody would have been any worse for wear. As long as they don't have a hive to protect, as a swarmed colony they are relatively harmless.
