Does anyone any have experience with ridding a blind of bees? We ran into this problem this last weekend and although I hate to admit it, the bees won by a wide margin. Professional help is probably out of the question because of the location.

Bees or wasps?

Have put a bug bomb in blinds for wasps in the past and that worked. A No Pest Strip in the blinds prevents the problem from happening, put one in in the Spring or when filling feeders late Summer

Most of the complaints I hear are Wasps using blinds for getting through the winter. Most of the time they are annoying but not aggressive as they are not protecting nests at this time of the year.

Bees on the other hand are a different problem

Roach bomb should do the trick.

During the cold I never worry about them and its never been an issue.

WD 40 with a lighter or hair spray. Just don't set blind on fire.

We have an old tower stand on our place with a huge hive between the floor of the stand and the base. You can't even get to them with a flame thrower. And they will mob you on your way up the stairs. I'm hoping for a lightning strike. roflmao

If you cannot get a beekeeper out there to remove them you are best off hoping they will move on their own.

Once they get their scent all over it they will continue to come back.

Derek on the TFF is our resident Bee keeper and all around expert. Highly recommend you PM him for advice. Good guy even if he spends more time fishing than hunting.

I watched a professional remove some bees once. He dug into the pile and scooped about a soft ball sized swarm of bees into a box and then set the box on the ground. Within 10 minutes most of the bees were in the box. He relocated them to his property. He said its all about finding the queen and the others will follow. Be gentle and don't hurt her or they'll attack. He said the ones that didn't make it into the box would die without the queen.

Well there's how you do it. Let us know how it turns out. popcorn
