If it would have been any type of bee other than honey bees it would have been cool. However honey bees are awesome and provide a great service for us. Without them our world would be completely different.

What a bunch of morons....lucky they didn't manage to burn the house down. We keep bee hives here on our property and on occasion they will swarm. No big deal getting them back. Depending on the type of bees they could be charged....

Do you eat anything? If so then bees do affect you. Bee's pollinate pretty much everything you eat, everything that the cattle eats, etc. Bee's have a huge affect on you wether you know it or not. As for the hippie comment I am nowhere near being a hippy. I just have friends that are bee keepers that have educated me on the subject.

That's hilarious, and could easily be our infamous redneck storytellin' in the form of a "real" blogged account.

Thanks, wtp!

Then in that case you are correct, they don't affect you.

Actually, Apples can't exist without bees, neither can many other crops we eat, like oranges and the other citrus fruits. You might not eat honey, but bees affect your diet in a lot of other ways. By the way, I am an old hippy, but that has nothing to do with my views on the environment in general, and bees specifically in reference to the thread. Those were affected by the Biotech and biology classes I've taken for my Science electives.

Except for the fact that this swarm lived in someone's house. A house that apparently the landlord was unwilling to fork out the bucks for to have them properly removed/transplanted. In that situation, I'd take matters into my own hands, too... though perhaps not in quite such an "explosive" manner. But, be(e) - pun intended! - it fire, pesticides or something else, I'd have gotten rid of them, too in that circumstance.

Bees make up a small percentage of pollinaters. Many other insects provide the same service. In fact there are far less wild bees today, yet we still have all the things you mentioned.

and provide no end of entertainment to the rest of us.

Seriously, my family has a ranch in S. Texas in Bee County. Want to know why they call it Bee County? Lots of d@mn bees. Lot of bee farmers there and lots of honey is made there. Bees also wander off and start wild colonies, a lot of times in bad places for people. I don't have a huge problem with what they did in regard to the bees(obviously not the brightest thing to do though, lol) Its not going to hurt the overall bee population one iota. Bees can also present a fatal hazard to people who are allergic. Our food supply is quite safe I assure you....

They could have forced the homeowner to take action via the local housing officials, no it is not as quick as trying to kill yourself with flammables. The bees would not have hurt anyone as long as they were left alone. Pity the putz didn't get his allergic self stung.

That was freaking AWESOME! I have no problem with bees, but I certainly wouldn't want them congregating on my swing set when there are kids around. Kudos to those guys!

Thanks for posting a link to that, WTP.

I've come to the conclusion Hondatech is alot like the saying that if you have a million monkey's typing on a million typewriters, you'll eventually get something good.

Some real amazing projects and threads come from Hondatech, but even more crap comes. I have a link somewhere were a guy puts a ls1 in a prelude and converts it to RWD.

Then runs over tree's with his civic tank...
