    Just like that, with no doors or windows open, and a bee will start flying around the room. It's been like this not just where I currently live, but before as well?

    Are you sure they aren't wasps? You may have a wasps nest in your rafters/roof space. This happened to my family, we had to get a council pest remover to deal with it.

    If not...I have no answer...maybe you're just incredibly sexy to bees.

    Every time you are near?
    Just like me they long to be
    Close to you.

    What is up with those fat bees that can only fly for a bit and then fall to the ground? Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

    I have more of a wasp problem. I left my window open the other day and one made its way into my room and did the chracteristic "I'll try and get out by flying into the window over and over again" that is often observed in most flying insects. I ended up unleashing my tennis racket on its ass.

    Maybe it came down the chimney?

    We had pidgeon flying around our house once; all the doors/windows were shut so we're pretty sure that came down the chimney. It pooed everywhere was a right mess to clean up.


    For flying bugs I would recommend a venus fly trap.

    Yep. That's the one. I keep seeing them on the pavement lately.

    They are actually the bees of a little known yet vast complex of caves on an archipelago near Africa. They apparently came across via a scientist, however, the official story was quickly scrutinised when they realised the bees were to smart for capture. Instead, seeing as rising ocean levels due to climate change and global warming was ruining the caves, they hid in a boy's suitcase. Upon return to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, they quickly pierced through the fabric of the suitcase (thanks to the fact unlike some bees, they do not have a barbed sting, and are therefore like wasps in the ability to sting and not die soon thereafter) and spread to the rooftops of buildings. The climate didn't suit them here and they had to eat more, thus increasing their weight. They are attracted to barbecues as it somewhat resembles the intense heat of Africa. However, they unwittingly fall into their demise as they breathe in the smoke, with the compound 2,6,3,8 trimethylocto-pentane, found in most bottles of starting liquid for barbecues, as this compound attacks the inside of the bee, eating it's flesh from the inside out.

    guess they're hatching out for the summer but it's a bit cold for them to function properly yet.

    anyway don't call them fat - they're very sensitive about that.
