Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, I just moved to a house on a lake. There is a nifty little boathouse and a little wooden ceiling-shelter thing next to it.
And during the day, that thing has like a dozen bees swarming all around it. I've sprayed that 12-month Home Defense stuff all around it. I've tried Wasp poison (unless I drench one of them with it, its completely ineffective). Lighting fires nearby (because why not. Bees hate smoke, right?). I even tried lighting one of those little citronella candles. These things won't go away. And they're kinda aggressive when I try to go down there and swim and stuff. They're bullies.
Here is a picture of me trying to defend my land:
I've been watching them, and I've found holes in the wood that they go into. I've squirted poison in there at night, and it doesn't really seem to have much of an effect. I got some Gorilla Glue (it expands!) that I'm going to squirt into all the holes tonight. Try to block them in. Would that work?
I know there is some kind of crazy disappearing bee problem, but these bees suck. They're taking the fun out of my summer and it'll make having parties down there super hard. I want them gone. What can I get that will make them want to leave? Some kind of substance that they don't like the smell off? A certain kind of spray that'll knock'em right out? Should I cover myself with honey, flail about down there, take the stings and when they've all died and I'm in great pain, call it a victory?
