More Bees and Demolition

The bees just keep on coming. We thought we had all the bees taken care of but every time we open a wall or ceiling we find more. We can't find any beekeepers who will take bees now. They say it is too late in the season to move the bees. The bee keeper would have to feed them honey to try and keep them alive and even so they probably wouldn't survive the winter. So, our brilliant plan was to not-so-gently encourage them to move elsewhere by pulling the wall in which they live down. Seems to have worked. When Tom went back the day after he and Matt pulled the bee wall down, the bees were gone and all that remained were some really angry yellow jackets. Seems the yellow jackets were freeloading off the bees and they lost their meal ticket.
