The best honey I ever tasted hands down, was Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey. If you put a spoon with some of it in your mouth, it is like the fragrance of a Thai flower garland, with a hint of Jurassic flora exploded in your brain. I wonder what mead made from it would be like? Never mind the false rumors, Leatherwood is NOT made from curing and tanning old men's penises.

For the wasp issue,

A spray bottle filled with tetrachloroethylene or Percoethylene wait till the evening when they go back to the nest and spray the nest down. This stuff drops them instantly and is a hell of alot safer than ether. Make sure your sprayer works first to so you don't become a pin cushion.

Can't find what I just listed: Chlorinated brake cleaner in a spray can is the next best thing.

Now....heres the other side of this. Wasps are efficient killers of spiders, so after your last thread you made you may want to reconsider



Bees.... find a keeper and relocate the nest.

Thats food buddy! I thought you were a Country Boy.

Honestly. Ask the missus about it. Some folks thinks it's an omen of money coming their way.

Fcuking bonkers if you ask me.
Depends on the nest, the variety, and their agressive behaviour.

They've recently relocated to a tree in my back garden. The sadomasachist in me says throw a brick at them, the Attenborough in me says similar..would be a rather stunning dispersal, would it not..

If the hive looks like a ball it's a wasps nest.
Wasps also nest underground.
One of the largest wasps nests found was in Takaka, NZ, it was estimated to have been more than an acre in area inside a subterranean field cave on a sheep farm.
The piggery next door provided more food for the wasps.
Wasps don't store honey. They eat it and anything else, scavengers.
They produce more scavengers.

Bees like to build into dry hollows, rock or wood, where they can store honey and produce larvae, which become workers and drones.

Bees with more yellow than black stripes are milder in temperament.
Blond bees rarely sting.

Smoking the hive out is not entirely necessary. Use a smoker (non_human variety) sparingly.

Home made smoker.

Get a 2 lt (or larger) plastic milk container , no lid.
Get some suitable smouldering material (old rags/cloth, cotton/ natural fibre. straw, etc.
Light it and stuff it into the milk container.
It will not burn with a flame, but smoulders.
Pumping the sides of the container gets the smoke going faster, so point the opening at the hive entrance and pump the smoke in.
"Carpet bag" bellows do the same thing.
Or you can buy a bee-smoker.

Put on a pair of overalls with all pockets and holes sewn up, tight at the wrists and ankles. this is over several layers of clothes and socks. put on laced up boots..
Thick leather glove tucked under overall sleeves.
A wide brimmed hat with a mesh net veil that's tucked into the collar of the overalls (not your shirt).Use safety pins to fasten tight.

Go for it.
Once you're in, you're in.
Remove comb and place in container.

Get away from there.
They'll chase after the honey you nicked.
You'll get stung a little.

Or you can go native and tell every one that the stings don't hurt.

A source of entertainment and the cause of many village stories.

A Thai bee.


Bees and social insects

No "nest", only flattish looking comb structure(s) produced by a bee from wax.

Stay away from round nests made from papery mash, they are either wasps or hornets. Sometimes called "bees", but not genus apis, the honey bee.

we had a bees' nest under the roof for 10 years and nobody ever got stung. Depends on the species of course. Anyway these guys got excited every afternoon as the sun went behind the house, swarming out like football hooligans, nothing happened. We were sad when they had to go when we redid the underside of the roof.

we had a bunch of bees decide that the wooden slats on our verandah would make a nice home

we got one of the security guards from opposite to remove them - he said he could take them home (on his motor bike!) although I don't know if he was successful

how do you make bees swarm to order?

I have a little knowledge of bees, I think they do this to get warmed up to heat up the hive for the evening when it is cool. They have to keep the hive at an exact temp. for the larvae

^^How does that one work, Chuchock?
Old dead wasp nest inside it?

I know they'll strip another nest for the paper mash to build their own, but maybe the smell of other wasps in it?

Wasps are extremely territorial. The Waspinator™ mimics the wasp's nest so that when the scout sees this, it immediately returns and warns the others not to go there. This is because wasps from another nest will attack and kill any scavenging wasps that stray into their territory. (NB: Sometimes these same wasps build their nests in various places such as holes in the ground.) Regardless of habitat, the Waspinator™ is still effective. It is affordably priced, very portable and made from recycled material. It will last throughout the season. Based on an old remedy for controlling wasps, the original Waspinator™ is the newest wasp control product on the market.
Other interesting products they sell;
