We got back from the trip and at the front door I had 3 pakages. One was a FedEx with my final check - Yahoo!! One was from Eman with some cookbooks we did an exchange on ( will post some pics later) and a package from Todd Johnson with some Maple Bacon cure - bacon hooks, a cutting board and more sawdust. All is well and right with the world.
I leave the cure (which is really smelling good with the brown sugar maple flavor) out on the island over nite and wake up to bees swarming outside my kitchen window the next morning - not a lot just 20-30 to begin.
We went out to run some errands and came home and Kathy starts yelling bee's! I go to the window and the whole back of the house is a bee swarm. They are now going into the vents thru the tiny screen into the attic. I call an exterminator and he says see ya Monday but when it gets dark you can hang some rags with white vinegar along the eves and it may help - I did that and this morning we were at 50% but still under siege so I call another guy and he says the same thing - hang some rags and call me in the morning. This guys says not to worry they are just starting to set up so we wont have to worry about a hive yet.
Has anyone else ever experienced this - Lesson learned - seal up the maple cure for sure
