Hair Spray for Bees

With summer coming we will have bees in the yard and the house. Reach for the hairspray, the hairspray will stiffen their wings, immobilizing them so you can easily remove them from the house.

Please, before you do harm to the bees, consider how benefical they are to our enviroment. My uncle has bee hives and he rents these hives out to orchards and berry farms. Every year, he finds more and more of his hives dying off. If we don't have bees, we won't have fruit and vegatables, they rely on cross pollination. Put a jar over them and put a piece of paper under the jar and the bee will fly into the jar and you can put it outside. You have to think of our childrens future and without bees we will have nothing. I beg of everyone to think before they destroy these wonderful creatures. Every bee, from a hive has a special job to do.

I only spray and kill the carpenter bees that swarm my outside deck. We weren't able to use our deck all last year. I just can't go through that again..

I was upset to read this tip. I regard bees as industrious, hard-working providers unlike pesky wasps. Surely you can find a more humane way to remove bees from your home.

We rely so heavily on bees for cross-polination. Are you aware that more than 60% of all bees in hives have been wiped out recently, and no one knows why?

To render one incapable of properly flying may be to render harm to our environment.

Hairspray....no, no, no! I've used what is called a BugBuster. It's like a vacuum and is cruelty-free.
You can do a search on the internet to find out where you can buy one. I got mine through a catalog, but I can't remember which one.

In all fairness, perhaps the tip came from someone who calls wasps and hornets "bees." My significant other has two hives (his 3rd one deserted this year), and before I learned more about this "hobby" of his, I too called wasps, hornets, mud dobbers, yellow jackets, carpenter bees and bumble bees all "bees." I certainly don't want to have wasps and hornets in my house, yellow jackets either. But I like the idea of a "bug buster"...I'm going to look in to that.

Wave a dryer sheet at them and aim them toward the door they'll RUN - any brand works - I carry them to all garage sales, tie them to my car doors and my purse because I am allergic to bee stings -- they work! I keep some in a small tin in my car so they are always handy when one flies in !

I found the bug buster in Miles Kimbell cataloge. It is called the BugBuster #882886 and it is on sale for $ll.99. The web address is www.mileskimball.com.

I have had mine for several years and I bought it for family and friends for Christmas gifts. It works by battery and it sucks the bug into the tube and put the lid on it and take the bug outside to release. Pretty nifty.

I don't have a tip so to speak but after reading all the tips about bees I wanted to respond. My husband is deathly allergic to bee stings if he is stung his heart immediately stops, he carries two epipens and he is still at great risk. I used to freak out every time I saw a bee but that doesn't help. I have my house sprayed by a company that is environmentally safe every year. The biggest tip I have for anyone in my situation is to trust in the Lord he is really the only reason my husband is alive today. He is 46 and has been allergic since the age of 12. Its all out of our hands! God bless this site
