Bees are great in their place. Our agricultural system could not exist without them. But nobody want’s a nest in their garage. If you were to find a nest of bees in your house, you could spray it or have a local bee keeper remove it. But you aren’t Mike Tingley, a man armed with a hand full of fireworks and the guts to use them indoors.

The story ends with good news and bad news. The good news: the bees are gone. The bad news: the house burned down. That’s gotta sting.

The buzz on the AP is that Tingley tried to remove the bees with smoke bombs. Somehow, that started a fire that raged out of control.

Some people are saying that this was a huge loss for Tingley. It’s really none of my beeswax, but as far as I can tell, mission accomplished!
