Bee hive under a Barbeque. It's Huge!

So I'm using my bbq this weekend... So I thought I'll clean it up..
I have know there are bees coming from under the cover so I thought I'd kill them, obviously...

So heres the BBQ in question

Now I know these bombs aren't for bees and that but I thought I'll suffocate/smoke them out. So here is the weapon of choice and delivery system.

I thought I was pretty smart hehehe designed to be easily manoevered under the cover of darkness...

So then I release the weapon of buzz destruction..


OMFG! The sound from under the cover was incredible!!! You could hear it 3m away easy...

Then I ran li ke the clappers....


Coming back few mins later to see the death toll...

Was at least 20mm deep mass grave

I continued to remove the cover and to light the bbq to give it a clean when I noticed some fatty looking substance on the top of the Side shelf thing....

Bit weird.. I clean it before I put it away for winter and no way was there fat there so I begun to wonder......

NO..... It can't be could it?

I slowly removed the rest of the cover only to find the HQ.

Found your post while looking for some ways to get rid of one, but OMG! I absolutely HATE bees... even the sight of all of them dead scare me! Just the thought of that many bees in one place! EEeek!!

Isn't it sad that you didn't contact a company that supports bees. Honey bees are dying off the world over and farmers are worried about food production since that will be greatly reduced in amount and quality without bees. I'm sorry all those bees died for nothing, had you just smoked them out, they would have made their home elsewhere.

It's really a shame that the idiot used poison before looking under the cover to see all of that beautiful honey, ruined by poison... he could have easily contacted a bee keeper, who would have gladly adopted the bees and left the scrumptious honey behind. Not to mention the fact that we need all the bees that we can get now that they are all dying.

you should really have looked for a local bee keeper. They would have come for free and gotten the bees and put them in a hive so that they would go to good use. Bee's are dying out all over the world. We need to save them not kill them. Call you're local animal control and they should be able to put you in touch with a nearby bee keeper. Then you are happy and the bee keeper is happy!

Sure, he could have called a beekeeper, but at what cost? They probably wouldn't have come for a number of days, and imagine having to have meat cooked under the griller. YUK!!!
