I saw a news report from California the other day about a swarm of bees that had attacked a family and their pet dog. They also invaded a neighbors house while they were and ended up with some loss of some bees the man stated with sadness in his voice. He had attempted to stir them back outside but some would not go so he had to spray them.
The poor dog was stung 300 times and I am not aware of what his state is tonight. It turned it the bees were living in a old dead tree on their property and had become quite large. I guess they thought everything would be find but it turned out tragic for everyone including the bees.
So I felt the need to write this entry since I am a bee protector. If you notice a hive of bees please call someone to collect them a lot of bee keepers will collect them for free and it continues to promote safety for non bee keepers and bees. A lot of colleges that have agriculture classes will have information on who to call. And there is always the internet. I have on web address for Louisiana but I know there are a lot of sources out there.
So on the subject of bees remember without them we don’t eat and help protect yourself and the bees please.
