Nothing can BEE easy!!!!!

We had the guys come and put new gutters on the house today. As you can see in the first picture, things were moving along pretty good. But when they moved to the back corner of the house, they ran into a problem. A small swarm of bees (probably 200-300) decided to attack the guy that was at the top of the ladder. After a couple of stings, a can of wasp and hornet spray, and spraying them with the garden hose, we finally had to give up for today. For all the years we have lived here, we never had any problems with bees until we got the new roof last year. Must be there are more places for them to get into now. This probably isn't good with someone who is allergic to bees living here. Hopefully we can get rid of the problem so we can get the last 2 hangers attached to the roof!
