We are having a serious problem with declining populations of bees, you will admit that my friend. Whole hives of bees are dying. What will we do if the whole bee population dies out?

By the way Jay, the Yellow Jacket is a wasp, not a bee.

By nature a bee is only agressive in defense of it's Queen, it's hive or in self defense, otherwise it will not bother you.

The bees that usually invade outings are yellow jackets.  These little critters are quite aggressive and sting with little provocation.

A friend of mine each year rounds up at least two swarms of bees complete with the Queen and after establishing them in a hive sells them. Here in the 7th Ward we have a couple bee keepers and they've had no problem with the city.

Let me ask this question ... a summer does not go by that honey bees are attracted to outings. I think that  the people in Canfield should call the Canfield Police to come arrest all the bees that are a common part of every summer and if they don't respond in a timely manner, then march on the City Councle to demand that they either force the Police Chief to do his duty or resign. If that doesn't work, then  form a human chain around city hall to pervent any city employees from going to work!

People of Canfield show those peskey politicians who is boss!

HONEY BEES YES!
CANFIELD CITY COUNCIL NO!

A friend wanted to raise bees in Youngstown.   He was told that he was not allowed.

Canfield Wages War On Bees

It's not bad enough that Canfield has a long history of trying to prevent certain groups of moving into their city, now the Canfield City Council is waging war on Bees. Obviously the members of the Canfield City Council are BRAIN DEAD. WITHOUT BEES, HOW DO WE GET THE FOOD WE EAT? These fools don't have a clue and are as useless as warts on the tip of the great toe.
