Cousin Nolan helped relocate the bee invasion to a bee box. So I made him a momento.
For a cousin who relocated a bee colony for me, I’d make it from gold!
It looks great!
This is BEEutiful! As a part of our schools “Bee Team”, I am In charge of maintaining the hive boxes. Ideas, Ideas!
Oh, nice! He definitely deserves an award, and that’s a really cute one.
Good on you for not just killing them in a knee-jerk reaction.
That tile turned out great! Isn’t it nice to think of, design, and blow out a personalized gift like that?
That tile looks incredible. Very handy having a bee-friendly cousin
The quotes we got was $2300 with no repairs. Crazy to rip open the exterior walls of your house. It would have been easier to just kill the hive but I wanted to relocate the bees instead. Nolan saved the day after I bought him bee suits and he built a bee box. The other boy is my very brave 12 year old son/helper. Nolan is reading up on bee keeping his sudden new hobby.
You’re all pretty brave. (I wouldn’t mess with either bees or bats.)
Glad to see people helping bees survive. Great gift for helping.
I agree. So nice to give a personalized gift to this level right away. Plus I was so thankful for all his help.
Honey bees I don’t mind so much. Not allergic, that I know (it’s been a while since I’ve been stung - I wisely avoid the flying critters…) - but here in GA, the yellow-jackets that nest in the ground? Those… Those gotta go. Fire and brimstone!!
Also they kill honeybees. So yep. Flamethrower!
we also get a lot of red wasps around here. Fortunately I live backed up to woods, and because of that they tend to nest in the trees rather than trying to nest on my house…
but back on topic - Great tile!
Seems totally appropriate!
Congrats on the relocation of the bees! The tile is exceptional!
I love it! And I love the ability to make really nice, personalized mementos as gifts using this technique.
