When I let my student in the front door at 12:30, I thought there was a large pinecone in the myrtle bush. When he left at 1:00 we realized that it was a beehive!
It was about 18″ long and about 8″ across by the time I took this photo at 2:00. The bee removal guy said it was a small hive and that the bees probably only started building it that morning.
It took me awhile to find a bee removal service. I called Terminex and finally found a person who told me that they contract out for the service, and that it would be better for me to deal directly with a specialist. I found The Beekeeper. They arrived 15 minutes after I called and it cost $165. Great service from a local company!
I felt pretty bad about killing all those bees, but well, you know…
