So, as I was in the middle of class this morning, Declan noticed two bees on the slider. I quickly sprayed them with bug spray and continued with class. A few minutes later, two more bees started flying around the classroom. Ok, this isn't good. I went out back to look around, on the side of the house, right above the classroom door, I could see a few dozen bees swarming around. LOVELY, I called our pest control guy. His dad called back and said they didn't deal with bees, but gave me two companies to call. He said it would be pretty pricey, so call them both. So, I sent Sean a text to see what to do. He said call them both and get estimates. Its going to cost between $155-225. The guy should be here within an hour.
I just looked out my kitchen window to see all the bees, and they were gone....Ok, that's weird, so I went out to investigate. There was one or two still flying around the roof, then I saw it, a square opening in the roof just above the classroom door. The bees were flying into that. WONDERFUL!!! I guess these bees are called scappies. (I know I spelled that wrong, but u get the idea) They seek out a destination to bring the entire hive, which consists of thousands. They stick around for about 72 hours. If they like the area, they come back. If not, they move on. Since I am allergic to bees, I'm not taking any chances. Lets just hope these guys can fix the issue quickly.
Enough of the bee talk. Here are a couple of photos of Elizabeth that I touched up with Picnik. Its a software offered by Picasa. Not sure if I like it yet. I am not a professional photographer like my Grandfather was, but I definately have it in my blood...lol. Let me know what you think. (Especially you Michelle...heehee)
