Re: bees in the wall

It happens. When I was little, a hive took residence in my parents' bedroom wall. I don't know how long it was there, though I do recall watching (from the safety of a car with windows rolled up) as my dad climbed a ladder on the outside with a vacuum cleaner and put it to the hole the bees used as their vestibule. This annoyed the bees, who began boiling out around the nozzle of the vacuum, followed by my father dropping the vacuum, leaping off the ladder, and running. A professional eventually removed the bees, leaving us with enough honeycomb so my mom canned it and we ate it for years.
