Default Bees in my bonnet!

While visiting the country place (aka retirement home) last week, I discovered a swarm of bees had taken up residence in my old Weber. On the plus side, I haven't used it much since I got Bertha and it's down in the pole barn 200 yards from the house. Called a bee keeper, but he only does swarms, not hive moving.

Very glad I moved the lawn mower into the garage a couple months ago. Maybe this winter I can haul the Weber up the hill and leave it.

Close the vents & put it in the sun, leave it there far a few days. High heat & no water will kill 'em.
Regards, GF.

STOP! wearing womens clothing when brewing... Unless you are a female and you really like bonnets....

As a New Yorker and a liberal I am forced to disagree. The OP's choice of headgear, gender-specific or otherwise, is his own. His choice in such a matter, as it has no measurable adverse effects on the public, should be protected and respected.
Wait... are we suggesting he TOUCH a grill that has stinging insects in it??

Already in a shady place, the pole barn. It's about as sheltered as it gets without sharing the house out.

Considering the amount of old charcoal and sausage drippings in the Webber, any honey obtained would be 'interesting'.

Me thinks I see the problem: I am a (sort-a) North Carolinian (really an Army Brat) and a conservative. I support his right to wear bonnets and brew however he want too... but I also get to think it is a bit "weird"... I mean… real men don’t wear bonnets, whine about the weather, are nasty to people they disagree with, are not bullies, don’t lie cheat or steal, and have no problem with “taking out a bad guy” when needed… (oh and are not Liberal HA!!!!!!) Happy Brewing….
