(All those little black spots on the photo are the bees trying to sting the hell out of Shane.)
It was really amazing to watch him work. He suits up in his beekeepers suit and he just goes right to it. The bees were totally and completely swarming around him yet he didn’t even seem to notice. He has some amazing stories to tell that is for sure! This morning when he showed up his left eye was all red and swollen. He said he had been stung on his eye ball yesterday! That just sounds so absolutely horrible. For the most part he says that he is used to the stings and they don’t bother him that much. The guy who did the work is named Shane Rodgers and if any one who reads this blog and lives in the Denver area ever needs bees removed, he is the guy to do it! He runs his own company called Through the Fog LLC. Shane estimated that the hive had been in place for about a year and that there were 30,000+ bees in it. Besides the 30,000+ bees he also took out about 15 pounds or so honeycomb. It is amazing what the bees build and produce! The rest of our day has been nondescript. Zack had school and I had work. During school today Zack went on a field trip today to the Colorado History Museum. From what he said he had a good time and learned a lot. This evening we haven’t done much. I a couple of good conversations with friends over the phone and that is about it. So all-in-all it was a good evening. We hope everyone has a great weekend. Thanks and peace to all! – J.
