This is for real, ya'll

Our back porch has been taken over by bees, tens of thousands of them. Now, this puts a whole new spin on "Ya'll are driving me crazy, go out and play".
I contacted a beekeeper yesterday who will remove the bees for me, for oh, $100-$400. So for now, this is their home. She did tell me that they may pack up and leave at any moment.
I keep hearing that supposedly there is a bee shortage and that somehow this is going to cause the world as we know it to end. So, world, here you are. You can have my bees, every last buzzing one of them! Just make sure you have them out of my yard by 5:00 today.

OMG! This is HORRIBLE! I must tell you, that I am NOT a bee fan at all. I hear the slightest buzz and I'm up and running, swatting at myself and freaking out.

Not too happy about this post at all! How are you standing this?

Oh My Goodness!! There are a lot of bees!!

I can't believe they want that much to get rid of them. Hopefully the bees leave soon.

this happened to me in az. my neighbor knocked on my door and said do you know you have a swarm of bees on your tree and ground. there was what looked like a million bees, but where probably only a thousand or so. i got a beekeeper to come out the next morning and and it did cost 120.00 but worth every penny. my neighbor was scared to drive out of her garage with her babies in the car. once you get them taken care of they don't come back,, good luck linda
