    If it sounds like a swarm of bee's then maybe it is a swarm of bee's let's get it boys!!
    My bird had an encounter with a swarm of bee's today, the bee's lost.
    I like bee's so I'm kind of bummed. I brought it down as soon as I could. ImageUploadedByPhantomPilots1464727183.246376.jpg ImageUploadedByPhantomPilots1464735000.866993.jpg

    I ran into a swarm on I-65 northbound near Merrilville. Jeep was covered with them. couldn't see out of the window for a few seconds. Bet I took out a thousand maybe. Needless to say, I had to stop at the car wash. Thats when I found out they were bees. Scared the hell out of me when I hit them.

    Yea, it's real bad and happens a lot here. Personally I'll take dealing with bears anytime over bee's or hornets...
