16 lbs of raw honey every 2 weeks.
What the fuck? Did nobody else notice this? This had me laughing for at least 5 minutes, you goofy bastard.

That's close to 1600 calories in fucking HONEY a day. That's still all simple sugars, Anthony.

What the hell else do you eat?

Thanks alot for all the help Jack. well I used raid with permethrin and tetramethrin. drilled holes in drywall where I here them buzz ( on the outside wall they swarm there near the underside of the roof). I inserted a small hose and sprayed the raid in. I used a few holes.

one bee came inside from somewhere. I could tell one of the holes where I applied the raid did agitate them.

they are not very active at night but its weird I can hear that buzz frequency clearly.

I am 99% sure they are honey bees. yellow/orange with black stripes no hair on abdomen . the thorax has some hair, black head and legs.

I caulked the inside of the closet where there was a drywall gap with the floor and they were coming in thru there.

I have an idea of the outside entrance's location , I will spray at sunrise...

I guess a little here a little there eventually they will go away.

I dont want to take apart the walls looking for the nest, let the ants eat it and earn their keep!

Any natural essential oil they dont like?

Thanks again Jack it's a big help._

It IS NOT a simple sugar It does NOT dump into the blood but gives steady energy.

I mainly have it in green tea / cofee and protien drinks.

they know me at the grocery store cause I used to complain when they couldnt keep it in stock cause I get the raw uncooked unfiltered kind.

Samson ate honey , dont forget.

I am a do it your selfer.. I love honey and bees but not in my house...like 4 or 5 at a time every few minutes were coming inside the house!
Just saw this.

Nope, don't do it. If they can't get out one way, they will stop at nothing to get out another. The other could be your living room and it won't be just 4 or 5 at a time. I've seen it happen.

Find out for sure, wasps or bees.
I wont caulk it till winter or if I am sure they are dead for a while. Only inside holes where they get in the house.

what about traps outside Jack?

I bought a small trap for yellowjackets ( havent used it yet) It's a small container about 40% full of liquid with a small hole in the lid.

I guess the liquid attracts 'em the go in, then drown before finding the hole they went in.

Couldn't I make a bigger one out of one of those rubbermaid boxes with some honey/ water mix?

I dont think poisin is in the mix I think it's supposed to smell like nectar and they end up drowning.

So if I make my house uncomfortable enuf they will find somewhere else to go.

Would that be a beneficial career move? Does the military have beekeepers?

I am not in the USMC anymore. but getting my honey for free would be nice and I dont want to kill em. as long as I can manage to keep em from getting in my living space or being a hazard I am ok with thier presence. we'll see how it goes tommorow . In the day is when they are swarming and coming in the house.

I'll see if that trap I bought fills up with them then if it does I'll improvise a large one.

Sounds like a plan, good luck. I would have moved into a hotel already.

I've known a few guys that keep bees. They live in the sticks (of coarse), but they all enjoy it. Depending upon which kind of farms you live around, you can get some really tasty honey-- some kinds are better than others.

You ought to check it out, you might enjoy it Anthony.

You could be a beekeeper.

My old man used to keep bees. We had honey and beeswax coming out of our ears after a few years.

The first time he went out to work on the hives in his bee gear, the dogs went with him. They never did again, and would growl and go someplace else if they saw him walk by with his suit on.

It's best if you have fields of clover and stuff nearby. I actually do buy local honey because it's supposedly beneficial for allergies to the local pollen. A few folks in my family have a bit of a problem in season and it does seem to help.

If you aren't using local, raw honey right now, you should go find some. Really, you'll notice the difference.

I don't think Samson ate a pound of honey every day, though.

I buy local honey for the same reason and it's way better than that mass produced stuff.

My Kids and I only use natural Peanut butter and Raw Honey now, finaly got the Ol' Lady trained to not by Skipppy and the Honey Bear and no white bread either..

Mass produced honey is almost always clover. Very light in color, very bland in taste. It's the MacDonald's of honey.

Honeybees are making a comeback locally, in spite of Colony Collapse. When I was growing up, they were ubiquitous. Hundreds of them at a time, working on a flowering bush or on the clover in a lawn. Then foulbrood and mites killed the wild hives and you didn't see them anymore.

Now in the last two years, I've gone from seeing ONE honeybee in our yard to seeing a dozen or so at a time. Still nothing like when I was a boy, but it's getting better.

Most people have no idea how much our food supply depends on honeybees.

Well I think they are all dead. oh well . Not sooo happy but I know they will find someplace better.

I am sure beekeeping would be good but I am sure code enforcement and the neighbors prolly wont think so...

I make a piture of strong green tea with 8 bags and then maybe a half pound of honey.
the result is strong so I cut it with cold water and that is my drink for all day and the night.

If its cofee I use a pound.

It does keep me from getting sick especially throat ailments...it is a natural healer and good for energy.

I also really like the " ultra 40" liver pills from beverly international.

I go thru 1 bottle a month. Its good for work cause I dont get hungry I just take labout 7 every 2 hours thru the work day.

it prevents catabolism

It's a biomass, it will rot. And if that rotten beehive smell, along with the putrid honey smell and dead thousands of larvae smell permeates your home, it will not go away. Many old Amish farm houses have that smell as I recall, as they just let em go in the attics for years at a time sometimes.

Dermestid beetles will over-run your home too, think 100,000's of beetles if the nest is even mid-sized.

A $200 problem can become a $2000 problem pretty fast.

I'm not kidding on any of that. IF they are honey bees, think it through.
(Jack, will that secretly get him stung, like, 700,000 times? Cool.)

AS FR AS i KNOW HONEY DOESNT ROT OR EVER GO BAD I have ants and they were all over the bees I swatted, I would imagine they would get the ones dead in the wall too.

why wouldnt the ants eat up whatevers left?

as for these beetles what kills them? 556?

If Anthony has the faith of a mustard seed he can kill even a large nest and not have it stink.

NO SMELL OR BEETLES.I AM SURE MY TRUSTY NINJA RKC ANTS ARE DOING THIER DUTY!

THE ADVICE I USED FROM YOU WAS SPRAY THE OUTSIDE ENTRANCE.

I DID THE HOLES IN THE WALL AS I WROTE IN THE NIGHT ..JUST BEFORE DAWN I SPRAYED A WHOLE CAN AT THE ENTRANCE FROM OUTSIDE.

I HAVE WEEDS AND DANDELIONS AND LITTLE PRETTY WHITE FLOWERS ALL OVER MY YARD ...I THINK THAT IS WHY THEY ARE HERE...I NEED TO MOW MAYBE ONCE PER MONTH OR 3 WEEKS.
