Oh my goodness!!!
Okay, so I had noticed that bees were going into the outer wall a couple of weeks ago. I didn't really think much about it, just that come fall the landlord would need to do something about it.
Well after today's incident with someone being on the property I wanted to close the Rolladen (think huge metal shutters that roll up into the wall) over the patio doors. So I pulled on the strap, nothing happened.... I pulled on several more times till I realize the bees on the outside of my house. I created a swarm, because apparently I was messing with their hive. They are mostly outside, but at this minute my dining room is blocked off because they are coming into the house too!!! There are at the moment around 8 bees (well that was 15 min ago, when I checked to see if the 2 that came in before I shut the room off had left) buzzing around in there. I have no bee spray... I am screwed!
I emailed my landlord and told him we had a problem and he needed to send someone ASAP. Hopefully he isn't traveling and actually sends someone quickly. Tomorrow I will take the girls with me when I go to post and we will stay on post till the Commissary opens and I can buy some bee spray.... Then I will come home and spray whatever ones are still in the house. I wish I knew where his phone number got put... I will look for it tommorrow.
Anyway so I have been doing research, and apparently the bees can damage the structure of the house. I didn't know this or I would have called him the minute I realized they had created a hive. AHHHHH! I'm not allergic btw, but none of the girls have ever been stung so I'm not sure about them.
