Bees Nest

On the walk path across the road, 20ft short of pad there is a root with a hole in it that has become a BEE NEST! Walk to right table to use pad.
A bad day at disc golf is still better than a good day at anything else.... Unless its also disc golf

Happened at Cam 2. Wait until dusk, spray entire contents of wasp/hornet spray into hole, then cover. Some would use a powdered insecticide and let them track it in.

If they are actual honey bees, don't kill them. Contact a beekeeper to remove them. Too many bees dying already.

You call the beekeeper, I don't have his number. I'm not willing to risk a kid (or adult) going into anaphylactic shock over a few bees. I'm spraying (have sprayed) when I see them.

Don't hold bumblebees by their wings. They will sting you. Trust me.

Oh, and wasp's nests on the Credit Island benches... Sprayed them too, after Caleb and I got stung.

Really? No qualms about disregarding peoples safety in the name of wringing out every last spec of 2nd amend "rights" in the gun debate, but find bees too dangerous to drop a dime on? Bees are truly indispensible, and are dying at an alarming rate.

Seriously, we should call the city. I bet they have a line on a bee guy of some type.

Exactly what danger to the public safety arises from my lawful ownership, and use of firearms? And/or my support of the second amendment? Ask our crew about the danger of working on the course and stumbling upon a nest of ground bees. To some, a sting in the woods without an epi pen can mean real trouble. The issue of colony collapse has nothing to do with eliminating an occasional nest of ground bees on a disc golf course, and only an imbecile could somehow bring the second amendment into this discussion. Unless, of course, you consider a can of Raid to be a firearm.

To be honest, I really expected you to compare me with Assad for my use of chemical weapons.

More guns, more risk of gun violence. Easier access, more possibility of some cowboy or idiot or psycho getting one. Plain and simple.

I guess your attitude doesn't surprise me though. Self centered application of force and destruction without regard to long term consequences is the merican way.

Bees rule!

I'll plead guilty to that one. I'm an American.
