Massive ball of bees on the trampoline is what my neighbor calls bringing a couple of vibrators into bed with her.

I can't remember the correct term, but those bees were just resting while they 'migrated' to a new nest.  Give it a day or two and they'll be on their way.

It's kind of like when I lived in Florida and people saw..gasp..a LIVE GATOR IN THEIR YARD!!1!!!  Give it a couple hours, maybe a day, and the gator will move on all on its own.

A hive swarm is freaky and awesome at the same time. And the bees are not that aggressive since they're not defending a hive.

It's called swarming. And it seems like they found a nest, a beekeeper came in and nabbed em.

24 hours.

Nah, they were kinda panicky about it. If they'd waited another 24, it's very likely the bees would have moved along on their own. Oddly enough, swarming is when they are generally at their most docile. I've dealt with two swarms recently and neither hung around longer than two days. And no one got stung.

ManifestDestiny: Holy crap, that trampoline! Tetanus much?


My thought, too. That thing is not safely operational, regardless of the bees.

That beeing said, swarming bees like that can bee pretty nasty (sorry). My son and I keep a big hive in our backyard, and they don't bother anyone much. I like to get high and sit in a chair a few feet from the entrance and watch them come and go. It's quite calming.

Of course, when you get in there to inspect, or take honey, them ladies can get a bit vicious. Especially when it's hot. We wear protective gear, and rarely get stung, but the sound of thousands of bees flying around my head haunts my dreams.

I'm almost there. I can't quite handle them landing on me yet. Best I can do is walk through a cloud of ten of 'em in my oregano or the dozen or so drinking from the fountain. Once I pop goosebumps though, I gotta scoot or I won't be able to think coherently.

Oh, I wasn't handling it. One moment we saw a couple. Then we were covered. We started the boat, put them in our rear view so to speak, anchored 3-4 miles away, and they caught us. It was only cool in retrospect. They were docile, but a bee swarm going violent on the water would be guaranteed death I think, and I was unfamiliar with the seeking out of new hives at the time.

Then I drove the boat from Monroe up to Detroit and back to lose em.

Sat down in an old Peugeot I'd been waiting to get worked on to see if I'd left something in the glove box. The bees were an unpleasant surprise that were rather unhappy I had placed my butt down, fark those things.

Can I add to that sentence?
Run like hell into the house.
Because, really, you don't want to, for the sake of an example, throw rocks at a hive and run like hell from the swarming bees..and then notice that one of them is flying at just above head-height, keeping pace with you.

/I can't recall if that person, for example, was stung

Would say it's a honey of a trampoline, but the pictures say otherwise.

Looks like one of those crapped out above ground pools that has become a health hazard; the bees are an environmental improvement.

I'm fully aware that tetanus isn't caused by iron oxide.

However, as even the link you posted states...the conditions that promote rusting also support the tetanus bacteria. And exposed trampoline springs with that amount of rust are a hazard in terms of scratches, pinches, and cuts.

Yeah, that's the ticket!  Thanks!

A beekeeper nabbing them is irrelevant if they were swarming.  I've seen them hang out for a couple days and a beekeeper would love to come get free bees.

A little over a month ago I made a finger about 5/16th or so shorter with a jointer.  I realized I couldn't remember the last time I had a tetanus vaccine so I actually adulted and went and got one.  Got a shingles vaccine (shot 1, #2 to come) while i was there.

Gotta say, I was almost surprised at what a pain in the ass it was to find a place to get one in these Covid time.  I don't have a dedicated PCP so I called several Doc in a Box joints and most said they wouldn't prescribe a tetanus shot unless they treated me for my already treated finger (I can bandage a wound ferchissake), and when I said "OK, when can I come in" they all referred me to somewhere else.  They all started with "We can't give you one unless it's an emergency."  "Look, I told you a cut the tip of my finger off, does that qualify?"  Amazing.

The conditions in the soil that lead to rusting are the conditions in the soil that leads to tetanus. The springs aren't in soil, so whether or not they are rusty has nothing to do with tetanus.

But whatevs, it's stupid to have a hazardously rotting trambampoline in the yard for a variety of reasons.

Wow...you'd think they would be more cooperative about something as important (and easy!) as a tetanus booster.

Where I live, pharmacies can do vaccines. It's a lot easier than going through a doctor, and you generally don't need an appointment. Might be worth looking into?

I went through this experience several years ago.

Finally, the local clinic told me to go to a local pharmacy (in a retail store). Sure enough...
