    I should have named this "My Lovely Bumble Bees"

    The tobacco Is toast . It was some cigar tobacco that I grew . I was in a have to do or let them have the barn situation. I was tired of being attacked and if anyone was at the barn they were attacked to . They would come after you if you was within 50 ft of the nest. My brother was sitting with me at my barn and one stung him and he was a ways from the nest.

    Sucks. Maybe wrap the box in some cheesecloth or something next time? Or screen box... glad you evicted them though

    I did not expect this bunch to be so big . Until I was close to them I did not know they were even there.
    I cut and rolled some hay last week . I was raking and my son was rolling . I raked over two bunches of bumble bees in the ground.
    I hit one bunch and bees was all around me . I let another bunch settle down and raked right by them to get stung by one in the top of my head.
    Well lets say there is a small piece of unraked hay on my farm. They can have it.

    Always hated raking through a ground bees nest. Old timers always said if you hold your breath they won't sting you. Id be 14 years old holding my breath in as high of a gear i could stand busting through them lol.
