Bee Crazy!

Monday, September 20th, 2010

IMG_0001I am not one that has had a dangerous encounter with bees. So I consider myself lucky.

Critter 911 recently was called to a home owners association because of a huge bee problem. This is not out of the ordinary.

What casught me off guard was that there was a riding lawn mower that had to be recovered from the lake next to the building because the man was being attacked by bees so much that he jumped off the mower and ran as fast as he could to get out of there!

Critter 911 basically took down any nest that had bees and also sprayed to prevent bees from coming back. We guarantee our work and would prefer customers call us before they run a lawn mower into a lake.

The cold wether is coming in so call us if you hear any critters in your home – (407) 699-4567.

We rushed to get the raccoons out of her kitchen and luckily (although scared) the homeowner was not injured by these hungry raccoons.

So next time you see raccoons peeking in your
