Not a comfortable situation for some people Williston Park backyard. Countless bees are found in a giant tree on the county grounds across the fence from the house.
And, as Jennifer Macrogan of CBS2 reported on Monday, cautious homeowners have run out of patience.
“I’ve lived here for the rest of my life. It didn’t matter until last year. Now it’s full of bees,” said Marianne Dillon.
Dillon said he couldn’t enjoy barbecues, hammocks, hot tubs, or backyard flowers.
“You get stung by them. That’s a big problem, and if anyone is allergic to them,” Marianne Dillon said.
“They started at the top of the house and went up to the chimney within an hour,” Andyron said.
Last week it was unbearable. Urticaria grows on trees and flock to the eaves. McLogan’s crew carefully lifted the mic to better catch the humming noise. Bees landed near them, bird feeders, ladders, and puppies.
And what is the source? A 90-year-old white maple in the backyard.
Thousands of bees are in the tree.
“People are like getting a beekeeper. Well, we did that. Beekeepers can’t touch the bees because they can’t go to the area because they are the property of the county.” Said Marianne Dillon.
The tree is adjacent to the Long Island Rail Road track. CBS2 contacted Nassau County.
Bees are an irreplaceable pollen breeder for our ecosystem. Therefore, the county said it would not eradicate them. However, we will work with the Cornell Cooperative Extension beekeeper to rescue and move the bees.
Dillons said the county should act faster.
“I’m worried they’re coming home,” Marianne Dillon said.
“They are soldier bees going out and looking for a new home,” said Anne Dillon. “And let’s make hives on the wall.”
Dillon and his neighbors admire the queen bee. They love honey.
Not their backyard.
