Holy crap!! And I thought having my termites come back was bad!yep!
Man, what a day! I've got bees trying to make a nest under a second floor eave and I had a rattlesnake under a trashcan in the back yard. Caught the snake and took it to the fire station around the corner. They took it to the desert. Gonna have to call a bee dude tomorrow. Ugh!
So, it's totes girly of me, but: I commend you for relocating, and not just whackin', the snake. (Double entendre noted, but not intended. I swear.)
Good luck with the bees; my boss had 'em in her walls and she said they're muy expensive to remove. Not as expensive as the squirrels she had in her attic the next month, but muy expensive nonetheless.
