    I can't find where they're coming from. I've probably killed over 50+ bees in my house. They seem to come from the front door area all the way to the kitchen where the patio door is. It's a big glass door so I'm assuming they go there because of the light.

    I just can't find where they're coming from. I figured it was outside to in but this is just too many bees. Any ideas?

    I saw a show where bees had built a hive behind the siding.

    Interesting, but even if it was in the siding, I can't see how they're getting on the inside.

    are you sure they are bees?

    are you confusing yellow jackets with bees?

    either way, you need an exterminator.

    had the same thing happen to me....kept seeing bees in the kitchen. I bought a six pack and sat in the kitchen one day determined to find where they are coming from. Sure enough I saw one squeezing through a tiny space between door molding and wall leading to basement. lol went outside and saw about 50 of them outside that spot coming in and out of the house. Filled the gap and saw no more. Surely there is a shit load off dead bees in my wall but it is a stone exterior and plaster walls, so I let it bee:)

    Actually if they are the normal honeybee's see if there are any beekeepers nearby.

    With the recent collapse of many colonies they often will come out and take the swarm with no charge once you can find where they are.

    THIS! I will even help you find a local beekeeper if you want. When they remove the bees they are totally gone, never see them again. Nobody gets stung, it doesn't take very long.

    Bees have suffered a huge population decline in the last two years, and it's threatening agriculture. A beekeeper will be a cheaper, better and much more conscientious way to get the bees out of your house.

    If they're wasps or yellow jackets, kill 'em dead. :)

    next time I kill one I'll snap a pic. I'm pretty sure they're bees though.

    :Q That's new to me. I was thinking of the family whose backyard swing set had a swarm of bees and some dumbass lit a fire under them . . . with gasoline.

    KILL THEM WITH FIRE.

    I hate bees, and insects in general.

    You need to get it taken care of asap. You'd be surprised but bees can actually cause quite a bit of structural damage. Also, I don't know about the bee keeper option but in many places you aren't allowed to relocate them like that for some reason. It's worth checking into anyway though.
