The bees have dug a whole underneath the pot to the left of long leaf that is bent over. I was afraid to get much closer to take the picture! Please don't judge me by my weeds :)
After I dragged her off the nest (I think she was to freaked out to move) and pulled a few bees out of her coat she ran into the house. I thought both dogs were OK until I came back in (I was trying to see if we had any bee killer in the garage and called our neighbor to make sure their dog didn't get into the nest). When I couldn't find Sophie I started panicking, when I found her under the bed not moving I really freaked out. We're very fortunate to have a high quality emergency animal center within 30 minutes of our house that I was able to get her to.
Long story short, they're keeping my poor baby overnight but she is OK. She had quite a few bee stings and was in a little bit of shock but she's responded well to treatment and should be able to come home tomorrow morning.
Of course any overage in my budget that I had for the month is shot and I dread writing my financial update at the end of the month, but our dogs are part of the family and treating Sophie was not an option.
As far as the bees, I'm planning on waiting until dark and then pour boiling water down the hole followed by bee poison. Hopefully that will take care of the situation. Obviously the dogs can't go back there until we get the nest taken care of.
I guess I'll go clean my kitchen now, after I kill the bee that's just started buzzing around my head! I must have missed on one Sophie's coat when she came in the house
Any other suggestions for dealing with the bee's nest?
