Re: Had bees emerging inside my house yesterday.
I've got tons of little buggers like that here. I kept finding tools and torches and basically anything with a hole or passage full of mud. At first, I thought that I must have been careless and dropped stuff in the mud and didn't remember, I was cussing at myself, but then I started finding mud in places I knew had never been near mud, like a coil of fuel-line hose. They are a terrible nuisance here. I had a whole bunch of frame top and bottom bars stacked in nice, neat piles waiting for time and need to be assembled...and when the time came, they were all stuck together- the grooves in the bars were packed with mud and larvae...and that's when it dawned on me why I was finding mud in everything...

If you want to be successful, study successful people and do what they do.
