This will certainly be a hit with the DIY homebrewer crowd:

That is friggen AWESOME. I was going to call them idiots at 1st but seemed to end in their favor. I get them swarming out here in spring/summer as well. One key difference though; they're KILLER BEES. I have a different tactic;

Get some wasp spray
get into car & drive near bees.
Crack window
Spray them for a couple seconds.
close window while they get REALLY PISSED
Repeat until they go to neighbors yard.

Or shoot at them with a pellet gun from house window until they go to neighbors yard if I can't drive near them. They killed a horse last year out here .

You are one hell of a shot to hit a bee with a pellet gun dude. Ex-sniper?

I have an in-law whose father is a bee-keeper. He comes in handy. Seems to know exactly how to handle infestations without getting stung.

I'm still going to call them idiots. That was real swift @#$%^%$ up the kids swing set. And then tossing cans of flammable liquids onto the fire? How many times has that back fired on someone and they end up getting burnt?
Oh well. Good entertainment for us at the expense of their kids swing set. Too bad they didn't have video.

CLANG! We have bees in freefall! Did I mention he is severely allergic to bees?
Nice. My brother nearly died from a bee-sting last year (found out the hard way that he has developed a SEVERE allergy). Real ****in' brilliant. Honestly, if this guy DID get stung and killed, good friggin' riddance. We can use fewer brain-dead morons in the gene pool.

Idiot.

It takes a hell of a lot of shots into the center. Somewhere inside there is the queen Beotch. They seem to get a bit frustrated with things flying through the big-old pile near her. A chunk of them falls off; fly back and re-attach. Basically trying to piss them off so they go elsewhere. I'd love to blast em with a shotgun but that'd be frowned upon by the neighbors.

Better than the $100+ fee to call someone in to take em away.

Too many safeguards in place to protect the stupid people and this is what we get resulting from the now screwed up gene pool!

Funny though.
