I thought that a new queen would be created inside the hive, if the old one died.

Silly me!

The worst thing ever to do is take off the bee suit if you get one bee in..because then all the bees can get in. You need to squish that one bee through the suit.
Tip for bees in long hair...thump head and squish bee if inside the veil. If no veil use a comb or brush to sweep bee out of hair otherwise you will not get the very angry bee out of your hair
Well done for spotting the hive had gone queenless so quickly though

It's true that, keeping up with both your and Mr. Gaiman's blogs, I've developed a sort of fondness for bees.

Lorraine,
I hopped over here from Sharon's blog and I am so glad I did.
To hear both versions is just perfect!

2008-05-28T19:48:00.000-07:00

Scarves are cool. We may, here of course, get snow again at any moment.

Emily, I think you would like them if you got to know them, the bees, powerful earth magic. You learn a lot about yourself tending bees...

Cabal is fine, but wiser.....As are we.

2008-05-28T19:02:00.000-07:00

Goodness! You brave women! poor Cabal though! How is his skin where he go stung? You are so sweet and wise to give him a stress toy!



Eeeek!I think I had a Bee Moment just reading that...

2008-05-28T18:58:00.000-07:00

Eeeek!

I think I had a Bee Moment just reading that, especially the part where you noticed your suit was unzipped.

*shudder*

Hopefully Cabal doesn't find bees appetizing. I had a dog who thought they were dog treats on wings and ate one. It took offense and stung him as he swallowed it. It's a Very Fine Thing we live only 1/2 mile from the vet. Dog was limp as a noodle and needed a shot of benadryl.

Dog was fine an hour or so later. I don't think I ever did get over that little adventure.

Aleta, it IS funny when it happens to someone else ...

Kidding; really, honestly, truly kidding. I love the bee stories but don't like the idea of living any of them.

I hope you are feeling better now!

2008-05-28T12:42:00.000-07:00

Yep, I'm adding a bunch of them to the pile of clothes I'm giving to the shelter I regularly donate outgrown clothes to. But I thought I'd check here, first, as many of you have mentioned living in places with Weather. ;)

2008-05-28T12:29:00.000-07:00

What a nice offer Pantagruel... (and yes, we are ALL dorks here). You can see a nice pic of Kitty on Malena's blog.

As for the scarves... if you are looking to part with them ... have you considered finding a good place to donate them? My friend and I went downtown a day or two before last xmas and we saw all the homeless (and thought about all the baked goodies we had made for our families... wishing we had them with us) and my friend has since started knitting so she can give scarves next winter as gifts to the homeless. I don't know if anyone in LA can use scarves at winter but there MUST be people who would need one.



Hrm, bizarro extra comment there. Oops.

If we're all dorks here, than I'm proud to be one....

2008-05-28T11:39:00.001-07:00

If we're all dorks here, than I'm proud to be one. Heh, I'll ask Kitty what you overnighted her if I see her on Friday! (Now I must go try to find a photo of her that is not just the lower half of her face, like her blog commenting icon is, so I will recognize her.)

Also -- I'm going to be moving shortly, and am purging stuff. Would any LaMies who live somewhere colder than LA use scarves I have knit? (They're neat scarves, just really too warm for here except for three days of the year.) I have a stripey gothy one I think you'd dig, Lorraine.

2008-05-28T10:52:00.000-07:00

No Bee Moments today. They can jolly well be left to themselves.

Pantagruel, we are all dorks here....Wait'll Kitty tells you what I am overnighting her with her BEA Badge.

DORKUS!!!!!!

2008-05-28T09:45:00.000-07:00

The rum & coke package is a funny coincidence. Something must've been in the air, saying, 'Lorraine has had A Day.' Hopefully, no Bee Moments are in store for today. ;)

So it has just hit me that Book Expo is thisFriday and will meet your Boss and hopefully Kitty, too. So nervous. Mainly because I feel like I need to somehow convince him that I am not, in fact, a homicidal maniac; and can thus be trusted to come visit to see you play music, and paint a faerie mural for you someday. I'm afraid I'll instead come across as a gigantic dork. :P

2008-05-28T07:24:00.000-07:00

We all need a Bee Moment from time to time...

Herding Bees....

Well, if the swarm is on a branch, or something you can remove, it is easy. You simply cut the branch, put a bag over it, and put them in a box. You will not of course, get them all, but the remaining bees will not last long.

You would then take them back to a nice hive, and you would have to see if you have managed to get the Queen, if not , you will need to re-Queen.

I saw a vid once where a hive had swarmed into an old wood duck house. In that case you take the whole thing. They will be on or in something.

Basically, you wing it.

2008-05-28T06:18:00.000-07:00

Oh. My. Once again, I am in awe of your multiple abilities, and your patience. (and may I steal the phrase, "bee moment"? that is such an excellent line, indicating stress without any cursing!) But seriously, Fablo, you are amazing.

2008-05-28T04:15:00.000-07:00

Yikes! I feel all agitated and traumatized just reading that.

2008-05-28T00:16:00.000-07:00

Hooboy I'm glad you both are ok after that. I'm completely a bee-weenie and was twitching and shivering through the whole post.
Poor Cabal, I'm sure he thought he was trying to help, silly dog.
At least you had chocolate for consolation, post Bee Hell Day.;)

Rubius, I'm completely with you on the bug thing, though I don't think I could reach into a bag of bugs. At least now I don't run shrieking. (I was even able to shoo a bee out of work the other day.)
And herding bees? LOL

2008-05-27T23:07:00.000-07:00

so the question really is... HOW do you 'herd' bees??? especially out of a lux residence with a swimming pool? How are they contained??? Big nets?

do you play the flute?... like Nathalie suggested... the rumour goes that the ancient Etruscans could play a double flute so cunningly and sweet that it would charm all the beasts of the forest. I wonder if that applied to bees as well.

do you display 'royal jelly' to attract the queen... bag her... then lead the rest of the bees away as they tag along so as to stay near their queen?

do you come along with a wheelbarrow of flowers and then wheel the swarm away as they try to get the pollen?

do you dance the great bee dance titled 'follow me, I know a great hive location'?

do you take the finest perfumes and simply waltz by... taking the bees with you?

do you use the (no doubt patented by Danth) easy breezy bee remover vacuum?... sucking them out of the air?

enquiring minds need to know... how do you 'collect' bees?

2008-05-27T22:45:00.000-07:00

You know, it was funny, I got a package today from someone I'd arranged an interview for, saying she had wanted to buy me a drink at the next con but thought that might be a while...

Since I had neglected to tell her I was a cheap date these days, she sent me a way cool pirate glass, rum and diet coke. And chocolate.

I gave the rum and coke to Merry Housekeeper, but the chocolate sure did help Sharon and I.

Funny old world.

2008-05-27T22:34:00.000-07:00

Dude.

I shall go have some whiskey for you, to calm your nerves after the Bee Moments.

2008-05-27T22:29:00.000-07:00

Spacelaw, I think both Sharon and I had a hard time with the blogs....It was very much a thing. A Bee Moment, where we learned a LOT of things about ourselves, and bees, and life, and Death, not to be dramaitic.

2008-05-27T22:24:00.000-07:00

JL1 and 2 are doing better. I will post on them again soon. They let me pet them while they eat and come to me when I come into their room.

Wild Kingdom....

2008-05-27T22:23:00.000-07:00

Oh dear oh dear oh dear.
I admire that you can make a fun account of it so close to the actual happenings. The whole episode must have felt like a day through hell and not quite back.
Sweet that good citizen dog should want to protect his friend.
Bees were upset and really had any right to be. What: stealing babies? Plotting regicide?
Hugs.

I quite like the idea of a bee-gatherer herding swarms. Did he play some type of flute?
