Spiders And Snakes
Lucky for them, they had the name of a bee keeper... I called, and he agreed to come out immediately (since he was going on vacation).
He was also willing to give us the honeycomb, but as it turns out, this was a fairly new hive, so there was no honey in it yet. It was, however, HUGE! He was scooping bees out by the handful to put into his "beebox".
He left the box there for a couple of days, to be sure all the worker bees found their way in... he was quite certain he had scooped up the queen & gotten her into his box. He was smoking them to calm them down, and just scooping up massive amounts of bees & dumping them in... it was kinda neat to watch! Really glad to be rid of them though... I was nervous since they were so close to the garden & Rach likes to help out in there!
We also had another little visitor to our lanai, but we couldn't get anyone to get rid of THIS pest for free, so we had to do it ourselves... TWICE! (guess he really likes the lounge chairs! LOL)
Here is the one I was TERRIFIED of...

She is the best reason to open my eyes every day! Currently living in SW Florida. I've also become a MAJOR Twilight junkie, so now I'm told I'm a TWI-MOM & I LOVE it!
